Subsections 4(6) and 4(7) of the Security Service Act 1989 require me to lay the Security Service Commissioner's annual report before Parliament subject to the proviso that any matter which it appears to me, after consultation with the Commissioner, would be prejudicial to the continued discharge of the functions of the service may be excluded.
