Yes. The Constitution provides a privilege protecting those papers, but it does not amplify that privilege. As section 106(1) states: "Subsections (1)(a) and (3)(a) of section 102 shall apply to a former member who has not died as if the references in those subsections to "member" were references to "former member"."
