                     (c)  the Inspector-General's decision on an application is to be in writing;

                     (d)  application may be made to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for review of a decision to refuse an application, or to remit a lesser amount than was applied for.

Note:          Section 27A of the Administrative Appeals Tribunal Act 1975 requires notification of a decision that is reviewable.
