Questions on matters relating to the work of the Sub-Committee

Minutes:

In response to a question about the reasons excluding the public from items 9-15 on the agenda, Members noted that, historically, this was due Benefices matters falling within City’s Cash.  The Town Clerk agreed to investigate whether the exemptions might fall outside of the Local Government Act of 1972.  Members also noted the good practice of submitting public reports, with ‘non-public’ appendices, wherever possible.
