Section 7 – Registration of individuals’ addresses

38.A written statement is the means by which a member is required to register their interests with the Clerk. The Interests Act specifies the nature of written statements and sets out certain obligations on the Clerk for their registration and publication. Section 7 of the Act states that the Clerk is not obliged to register the address of any individual named or referred to in the written statement, so as to avoid any unnecessary publication of personal data.
