“closed evidence” means evidence which is subject to a security direction;

“closed inquiry statement” means such part (if any) of an inquiry statement as includes or refers to closed evidence;

“closed precognition” means such part (if any) of a precognition as includes or refers to closed evidence;

“open inquiry statement” means such part (if any) of an inquiry statement as does not include or refer to closed evidence;

“open precognition” means such part (if any) of a precognition as does not include or refer to closed evidence;

“potentially closed evidence” means evidence in respect of which a request for a security direction has been made; and

“specified person” means a person specified in, or a person of such description as is specified in, a security direction as being entitled to hear or inspect closed evidence.
