Reservoirs Act (Northern Ireland) 2015

Section 113 – National security: further provision

This section makes provision for the Secretary of State to issue a non-disclosure notice to the Department if it appears that disclosure by any other means of any information which the Department may hold or receive in relation to controlled reservoirs, would adversely affect national security. This is in addition to the Secretary of State’s power in section 9(4) to direct the Department not to include in the controlled reservoirs register any information which would adversely affect national security. The non disclosure notice may also require the Department not to give to any person any indication of the existence of such information. This section does not prevent the Department from complying with any other legal obligation to which it is subject and as listed in subsection (4).
