    Instructions

    You only need to answer the questions in the form to the extent that they are relevant to your claim.

    The courts have long held that a ‘bare’ claim for privilege cannot stand without support, so the burden of establishing the existence of a privilege claim rests with you.

    If you do not provide details supporting your claim, we may seek further information or evidence about your claim (including through our information-gathering powers) or commence legal proceedings to determine your claim.

    We will not argue that your responses to the questions posed in this document amount, by themselves, to a waiver of your LPP.
