New Victorian Privacy Commissioner, NSW still waiting

Congratulations to Helen Versey, formerly Deputy Privacy Commissioner in Victoria, who has been appointed Commissioner to succeed Paul Chadwick whose 5 year term ended in July last year. See media release 13 March 2007

Following the swearing in of the new NSW Cabinet yesterday, will the new Attorney General John Hatzistergos, act to appoint someone to the NSW equivalent position which has not been filled by a permanent appointment since the resignation of the Commissioner 4 years ago?

The current Acting Privacy Commissioner John Dickie, was first appointed in September 2003, and is still there.

As the Australian Privacy Foundation commented in February, N.S.W. has been asleep at the wheel on privacy for years.
