Addenda

An addenda was published on 20th May 2020 as a result of inclusion of an additional proforma: “Template for using the information-sharing powers (Part1)”, now included as Annex B, page 28. Reference to this has been added to the body of the text (pages 7 and 9). The previous Annexes B and C have been renamed C and D, respectively.

The HTML and PDF have been updated to reflect these changes.
