Public/ open meeting at 11.30 AM TOMORROW - Monday 25th Oct

West Midlands Police Authority are holding a meeting about the issues surrounding the controversial 'Project Champion' spy cameras, which was suspended in July.

There will be a response from the police and the police authority to the recent independent review into the fiasco. There will aslo be a report from the chief constable regarding "the future of the cameras". Th...en the public (who are allowed to attend, but not speak, I'm told) will be ejected. The meeting will continue in closed session behind closed doors with the public excluded while talks are carried out in secret.

This is because: "In accordance with Paragraph 10 of Schedule 12A to the Local Government Act 1972, the Legal Adviser has determined that there will be no advance disclosure of the following reports because the public interest in disclosing the information set out in the following items is outweighed by the public interest in maintaining the exemption from disclosure."

Bring signs, posters, placards and clear your heckling throat. This is local democracy: don't let the powers that be steamroller their agenda through.

See you there! : )
