A nationwide survey of secrecy in local government has been launched by the Society of Editors.
It aims to find out which councils are planning cabinet-style executive committees and which of them will meet in secret.
The survey follows one carried out by the society in the North of Eangland.
Executive director Bob Satchwell says: “It is vital that we build up a picture of councils that are taking the opportunity of legislation that is still going through Parliament to return to their secret ways.”
