  (1)   Information relating to the affairs of an individual must not be included in a report under section   685 (which allows the Minister to require reports) or in a report referred to in section   686 (which deals with annual reports) if:

  (a)   the individual is named, or otherwise specifically identified, in the report as the individual to whom the information relates; or

  (b)   it is reasonably likely that people generally (other than people to whom the individual has disclosed information relating to the individual's affairs) would be able to work out the identity of the individual to whom the information relates.

  (2)   For the purposes of applying paragraph   (1)(b) to information relating to a particular individual's affairs, the context in which the information appears, and information that is otherwise publicly available, must be taken into account (as well as any other relevant matter).
