Application for public interest immunity

“(1) In any relevant civil proceedings in which the Secretary of State considers that—

(a) a party to the proceedings, whether or not the Secretary of State, would be required to disclose material in the course of the proceedings;

(b) such disclosure would be damaging to the interests of national security; and

(c) the interests of national security outweigh the public interest in the fair and open administration of justice,

the Secretary of State must make an application for public interest immunity under this section.

(2) An application for public interest immunity under this section must be made by the Secretary of State issuing a certificate relating to the individual documents in question and giving reasons why, in the Secretary of State’s view, disclosure of each relevant document would be damaging to the interests of national security.

(3) The court must, when deciding whether the material attracts public interest immunity on application under subsection (1), weigh the degree of harm to the interests of national security if the relevant material is disclosed against the public interests in the fair and open administration of justice.

(4) The court shall, in conducting the balancing exercise required under subsection (3), consider whether any of the following procedures may mitigate any harm claimed to the interests of national security so as to enable disclosure or partial disclosure of material subject to an application under this section—

(a) redaction;

(b) orders for anonymity;

(c) disclosure subject to confidentiality undertakings;

(d) hearings in camera;

(e) restrictions on reporting;

(f) restrictions on access;

(g) restrictions on the use of the material.

(5) If, after conducting the process set out in subsections (3) and (4), the court concludes that the balance of the public interest lies in excluding any material, the court must uphold the application for public interest immunity made by the Secretary of State in relation to that material.

(6) Where any claim by the Secretary of State for public interest immunity is upheld the court must appoint a special advocate pursuant to section 8.”

“(1) In any relevant civil proceedings in which the court has granted an application for public interest immunity and excluded material relevant to the issues identified in the claim under Section (“Application for public interest immunity”) a party to the proceedings may apply to the court for a declaration that the proceedings are proceedings in which a closed material application may be made.

(2) The court may, on application under subsection (1), make such a declaration only if the court has considered relevant material and is satisfied that—

(a) there are no procedural or other means which would enable the court to provide a just resolution of the issues and the claim cannot be determined without a closed material procedure;

(b) the public interest in determining that particular claim outweighs the public interests in fair and open administration of justice;

(c) there is no serious risk of injustice to a party if the application is granted; and

(d) the court is satisfied that it can properly assess the reliability of the closed evidence notwithstanding the absence of one or more party.

(3) In determining the risk of injustice to each party under subsection (2)(c), the court must ignore any costs consequences to the Secretary of State which may be caused as a result of an application under subsection (1) made by him.

(4) On the court granting a declaration under subsection (1), a party may apply for a relevant document or other material to be excluded from proceedings.

(5) In each application made under this section, the court may in its discretion order non-disclosure of a document (or other specific material) only if the court has considered that evidence and is satisfied that—

(a) there are no procedural means available which would enable disclosure or partial disclosure of that evidence;

(b) the public interest in excluding that particular document (or other material) on the grounds of national security outweighs the public interest in fair and open administration of justice; and

(c) there is no serious risk of injustice to a party if that document or other material is excluded.

(5A) Notice of any application made under this section must be served on all parties to the proceedings.”
