Councillor P. Baldwin joined the meeting at this juncture.


In the absence of the applicant, the Committee unanimously agreed to proceed with the hearing.


Having regard to the views expressed by the Proper Officer regarding the public interest test, that on balance the public interest in maintaining the exemption outweighed the public interest in disclosing the information and that the report should be exempt.


RESOLVED that the public be excluded whilst this item of business is transacted as it is likely there would be a disclosure of exempt information as defined in Paragraph 12, Schedule 12A of the Local Government Act 1972 (as amended).


Consideration was given to the report of the Team Manager Trading Standards and Licensing to review an application for a Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Vehicle driver’s licence.


Application No. 1.1(a)


RESOLVED that the report which contained information relating to a particular individual be accepted and the applicant’s Hackney Carriage/Private Hire Vehicle drivers’ licence be REVOKED.
