FREEDOM OF INFORMATION ACT 1982 - SECT 47H

Public interest conditional exemptions--research

                   A document is conditionally exempt if:

                     (a)  it contains information relating to research that is being, or is to be, undertaken by an officer of an agency specified in Schedule 4; and

                     (b)  disclosure of the information before the completion of the research would be likely unreasonably to expose the agency or officer to disadvantage.

Note:          Access must generally be given to a conditionally exempt document unless it would be contrary to the public interest (see section 11A).
