Victoria leads, then daylight, on legal spending disclosure

Another issue for the already crowded "can do much better"box.

According to this report in today's Australian "(no) other government -- state or federal -- comes close to matching Victoria's commitment to disclosing data about its spending on legal services."Chris Merritt adds the transparency " helps the Government focus on problem areas and gives the wider community a good idea of how it is spending millions of dollars in public money.That cannot be said of any other state or territory government. Because of that, nobody can blame voters in other states for suspecting the worst."
