Matters Arising – Non-Public reports and minutes
Members noted that it was City Corporation Policy to apply the Local Government (Access to Information) Act 1985 in respect of City’s Cash reports, even though it was not required to do so. Furthermore, the City Corporation had recently amended the template for non-public reports, to make them more specific as to their reason(s) for exclusion. The Town Clerk advised that officers were required to make a case for a report being non-public, with the final decision resting with the Town Clerk. Members also noted that it was good practice for a public report to have a non-public appendix, if possible, and not to exclude the entire report.
