112 Effect of direction

(1)

Notwithstanding any other enactment, but subject to section 116 and to any regulations made under this Act, where, in respect of any public register, an agency makes a direction in respect of any relevant information, and for as long as that direction remains in force,—

(a)

that relevant information must not be included in—

(i)

any copy (including a printout) of the whole or any part of the public register; or

(ii)

any index to the register; or

(iii)

any extract from, or certificate as to information recorded on, the register—

that is made available to the public after the direction is made; and

(b)

that relevant information must not be made available for inspection by members of the public (other than the person to whom the relevant information relates) who wish to inspect the register or any index to the register; and

(c)

no application made, by or in relation to the person to whom the relevant information relates, for the inclusion of any information on the public register, to the extent that the application contains relevant information relating to that person, must be made available for inspection by members of the public (other than the person to whom the relevant information relates);—

but that relevant information is, for all other purposes, deemed to be included on the public register.

(2)

The references in paragraphs (a) to (c) of subsection (1) to relevant information relate only to such relevant information relating to the person to whom the direction relates as the agency concerned is reasonably able to identify, having regard to the information provided by the applicant for the direction in his or her application under section 108(1).
