1 City, University of London’s Publication Scheme, produced in accordance with the Freedom of Information Act 2000, states that the
approved minutes of the meetings of Council and Senate are routinely published on the web. “Open” and “Restricted” Council papers,
with the exception of the minutes of sub-committees, will normally be made available on the Staff Hub following the discussion at the
Council meeting. “Open” Senate papers are published on the web and “Restricted” papers are also available to staff via the web using
a password. The agenda, papers and minutes for the other Committees of Council and Sub-Committees of Senate are not routinely
published on the web or Staff Hub, with the exception of the open minutes of Remuneration Committee which are published on the web.
The classification of papers as “Open”, “Restricted” and “Closed” has been determined in the light of the provision of the Freedom of
Information Act. “Open” papers will normally be made available to a member of the public lodging an FOI request. “Closed” papers will
not normally be made available. “Restricted” classifies a paper that is “Closed” but has been made available to staff. Staff should treat
“Restricted” papers as confidential and not share or discuss them with anyone other than City staff. The Committee may change the
classification of papers on the agenda at the meeting at which they are considered.

2 Discussion will be limited to starred items only. Members are asked to give advance notice of a wish to star an item not starred on
this agenda. Recommendations included in papers not starred and thus not discussed will be taken as approved. Members are invited
to raise questions of detail with the speakers specified for a paper ahead of the meeting with a view to improving the effectiveness of the
meeting
