Treatment of exempt information at council meetings

Owen Temple made this Freedom of Information request to Isle of Wight Council

Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was partially successful.

Dear Isle of Wight Council,

Please can you supply me with the following information about items considered under Part B (Press and Public excluded) at meetings of the council:

1) Are the specific reasons as to why the information is exempt stated in the Agenda for the meeting?
2) Is the Part B of the meeting fully minuted and the full minute agreed in Part B of a future meeting?
If not, how is the Part B minuted?
3) Are all or some papers considered under Part B routinely reviewed at a later date to establish whether the reason for their exemption remains valid, or whether the passage of time has resulted in the public interest in their publication out weighing the reason for which they were originally exempted?
4) If only some items are routinely reviewed, what is the policy as to which items should be reviewed?
5) When it is established that the exempt paperwork or record relating to a Part B meeting is appropriate for total or partial publication, either as a result of routine review or because it has been supplied in reply to a Freedom of Information request, is that paperwork then published on the council’s website alongside the other paperwork for the relevant meeting?
6) Has the council ever reviewed its policy on Part B papers in one of the council’s public meetings?

Yours faithfully,

Owen Temple

McLaughlin, Lucy, Isle of Wight Council
