Explanation of Reasons

Reason restricted justification

The attached exempt annex is NOT FOR PUBLICATION in accordance with paragraph 3 of Schedule 12A of Part 1 of the Local Government Act 1972 in that it contains information relating to business and financial affairs, namely details of the prices submitted by unsuccessful bidders.
The public interest test has been applied to the information contained within the exempt annex and it is considered that the need to retain the information as exempt outweighs the public interest in disclosing it because to disclose it could prejudice the Council in any future procurement of these services.
