"(5) Subject to subsection (6), application may be made to the

Administrative Appeals Tribunal for review of a reviewable decision.

"(6) Application may not be made to the Administrative Appeals Tribunal for

review of a reviewable decision referred to in paragraph (1)(c) if a person

review of a reviewable decision referred to in paragraph (1)(c), a person is
