(2)The statement referred to in subsection (1) may be refused, or the specification of the reasons restricted, on grounds of national security.
(3)A tribunal or Minister may refuse to furnish a statement under subsection (1) to a person not primarily concerned with the decision if of the opinion that to furnish it would be contrary to the interests of any person primarily concerned.
(4)Subsection (1) does not apply to any decision taken by a Minister after the holding by him or on his behalf of an inquiry or hearing which is a statutory inquiry by virtue only of an order made under section 16(2) unless the order contains a direction that this section is to apply in relation to any inquiry or hearing to which the order applies.
(5)Subsection (1) does not apply—
(a)to decisions in respect of which any statutory provision has effect, apart from this section, as to the giving of reasons,

(a)decisions of any particular tribunal or any description of such decisions, or
