It isn't possible to point to legislation that explicitly states that decisions on confidential matters must be published.
The legal situation simply stems from the statutory requirement that council decisions must be recorded in minutes (which must be approved and signed) combined with the statutory right for citizens to inspect minutes. There is nothing in the legislation that would allow any decision to be excluded from the minutes, or would limit the right to inspect minutes.
