Restrictions on disclosure of certain information etc.

             (1)  Despite anything else in this Act, the Secretary must not give to the Immigration Assessment Authority a document, or information, if the Minister certifies, under subsection (2), that the disclosure of any matter contained in the document, or the disclosure of the information, would be contrary to the public interest:

                     (a)  because it would prejudice the security, defence or international relations of Australia; or

                     (b)  because it would involve the disclosure of deliberations or decisions of the Cabinet or of a committee of the Cabinet.

             (2)  The Minister may issue a written certificate for the purposes of subsection (1).
