Further Senate Committee hearing on FOI Reform Monday
The Senate Finance and Public Administration Committee is back to the Freedom of Information Reform Bills on Monday with a hearing in Melbourne, and a broad range of witnesses speaking to their submissions including academics Johan Lidberg and Moira Patterson, yours truly, the Australian Law Reform Commission, Australian Press Council, Victorian Privacy Commissioner, Public Interest Advocacy Centre and Liberty Victoria. Details here but no broadcast by the look of it. All submissions suggest the reforms are good, but scope to do better.
