Flax Act, 1936

Publication of contents of registers and other matters.

24.—(1) The Minister may publish, in such manner as he may think fit, all or any of the matters entered in a register kept under this Act, and notice of the cancellation or alteration of any registration in any such register.

(2) No individual return or part of a return furnished in pursuance of this Act shall be published or disclosed except for the purposes of a prosecution under this Act.

(3) The Minister may, from time to time, collect and publish such statistical information (including statistics derived from returns made pursuant to this Act) as he may think fit with respect to any matter to which this Act relates, but so far as is reasonably practicable no statistical information so published shall contain any particulars which would enable any person to identify such particulars as being particulars relating to any individual person, business, or concern.
