Conclusive certificates-still going..

Edging closer-still not quite there. Debate on the Federal Freedom of Information (Removal of Conclusive Certificates and Other Measures) Bill 2008 got underway for half an hour in the House of Representatives last night, but was interrupted before the Bill passed. 13 speakers, but fairly predictable themes along party lines. The Bill was introduced in the Senate in November 2008 and passed there in August.

No sign yet of the broader FOI Reform bills. Special Minister of State Senator Ludwig said on 6 August "the bills will now be introduced into parliament."

Thanks to Open Australia for the Hansard link.
