Sensitive information

Where I consider that any of the information required to be registered is sensitive information (because its availability for public inspection creates or is likely to create a serious risk for me or, a person who lives with me may be subject to violence or intimidation) I must contact the Monitoring Officer and get  agreement that this information does not have to be included.

This also applies to additional interests and/or changes to my Register of Interests. If sensitive information that has been excluded is no longer sensitive, I must add this information to my form within 28 days of becoming aware of this.
