Motion summary

It was moved by the Lord Mackay of Ardbrecknish, in Clause 17, page 10, line 23, at end to insert: (“(2A) In the case of a local authority, a publication scheme must provide for the release of any agendas, minutes, background papers and reports at least three clear days before any local authority meeting to which they are to be presented. (2B) For the purposes of subsection (2A)—(a) the term “meeting” shall include (but not exclusively) meetings of any executive of a local authority, meetings of any committee or sub-committee of any executive, and meetings of any committee or sub-committee of the local authority, (b) if the meeting is convened at shorter notice than three days, the agendas, minutes, background papers and reports shall be available as soon as possible before the commencement of the meeting, (c) minutes shall include a summary of discussions, detailing (but not exclusively) substantive comments made by the participants, motions tabled and the way each participant voted on any division or vote. (2C) Subsections (2A) and (2B) shall not apply to information which would be deemed “exempt” information under section 100I, of and Parts I, II and III of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972.”); which being objected to, the question was put thereupon, and the Committee divided:
