Freedom of Information Conclusive Certificates for Senate Committee hearing this week.
The Senate Finance and Public Administration Committee has a half day scheduled this Thursday for a hearing on the abolition of conclusive certificates bill. The line-up of witnesses is here (PDF 7KB). The hearing was bumped from last Thursday as a result of the Senate's close interest in the Government's plans to spend $42 billion. A week is a long time, as they say- last week then Deputy Secretary (Governance) of the Department of Prime Minister and Cabinet Mike Mrdak was down to appear.He's now off on other things having since been appointed Co-ordinator General in charge of herding cats for the management of expenditures associated with the economic stimulus package(s).
