Slow-no?- progress in the Capital Territory.
Whatever happened to the ACT Assembly Committee inquiry into the Freedom of Information Act?
Impressive terms of reference were adopted in April last year, but apart from three published submissions including one from the Australian Press Council there is no visible sign of activity since, and no report date for the Committee. Given the ACT Act is basically the same as the Commonwealth Act, perhaps it's been shelved until those reforms are settled, but no-one seems to have said as much.
