Queensland RTI set for Parliament this week

Queensland's Right to Information Bill, to replace the Freedom of Information Act, and the Privacy Bill are to be introduced into Parliament this week, according to the Brisbane Times. No details so far about what changes if any as a result of issues raised during the consultation phase.The media gripe mentioned- that information released to an applicant will be posted on the web within 24 hours thus limiting the impact of information ferreted out by a journalist for example- seems legitimate.The Federal Government Freedom of Information Reform Exposure Draft provides for publication of disclosed information within 10 days.
