(1) If the Secretary needs further information for a purpose connected with making an allocation under Division 14, the Secretary may give an applicant a notice requesting the applicant to give the further information within 28 days after receiving the notice, or within such shorter period as is specified in the notice.
(2) The application is taken to be withdrawn if the applicant does not give the further information within 28 days, or within the shorter period, as the case requires. However, this does not stop the applicant from reapplying, either:
(a) in response to the invitation in question (on or before the closing date); or
(b) in response to a later invitation to apply for allocation of places.
Note: The period for giving the further information can be extended--see section 96-7.
(3) The Secretary's request must contain a statement setting out the effect of subsection (2).
