What happens to my submission?
The Law Commission’s processes are public, and it is subject to the Official Information Act 1982. So, if someone asks us for your submission we will normally provide it. We will consider any requests for withholding information on grounds of confidentiality or for any other reason according to the Official Information Act 1982. The Law Commission also complies with the Privacy Act 1993, which governs how we collect, hold, use and disclose personal information you provide us. You have the right to access and correct your personal information.
We will use submissions to inform our consideration of the issues that arise in this review, and in any future reviews that cover the same or related issues. The Commission may refer to submissions in its reports, but we will anonymise submissions from private individuals. We keep all submissions as part of our official records.
If you do not want us to release all or part of your submission (including your name) or for us to refer to it in any Commission publication, please tell us which parts we should withhold and the reasons. We will consider your views.
