Information has been withheld under the following provisions of the Act:

• Section 9(2)(a) - to protect privacy

• Section 9(2)(d) - to avoid prejudice to the substantial economic interests of New Zealand

• Section 9(2)(g)(i) - to maintain the effective conduct of public affairs through the free and frank expression of opinions

• Section 9(2)(h) - to maintain professional legal privilege.

• Section 18(c)(i) – release would contravene provisions of other legislation, specifically section 105 of the Reserve Bank of New Zealand Act 1987.
