Government round-table on FOI Reform bills.
The Department of the Prime Minister and Cabinet will host a forum for interested persons to discuss the exposure draft Freedom of Information reform bills in Canberra on Thursday 7 May, from 2.30-4.30. To attend email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone Maia Ablett on 6271 5245 by 5 May 2009. I hope to be there, but a trip to Canberra for two hours, meant to include an overview of the proposed reform measures, and discussion of the draft bills-are they sure they can spare the time? It sounds as if discussion of other ideas that go beyond the drafts is also out of the question.
