45. Confidentiality of documents — grounds for refusing inspection

(1) Where an Office-holder considers that a document forming part of the records of the Insolvency Proceedings —
(a) should be treated as confidential; or
(b) is of such a nature that its disclosure would be prejudicial to the conduct of the proceedings or might reasonably be expected to lead to violence against any person,
the Office-holder may decline to allow it to be inspected by a person who would otherwise be entitled to inspect it.
(2) The persons to whom the Office-holder may refuse inspection include members of a creditors' committee.
(3) Where the Office-holder refuses inspection of a document, the person wishing to inspect it may appeal to the Court.
(4) The Court's decision may be subject to such conditions (if any) as it thinks just.
