Defence publishes Red book: No 3
Defence, having released the document to two Freedom of Information applicants, has published its incoming government brief. The document, not surprisingly is more heavily redacted than the previously released Treasury and Finance briefs. The Department's Media Release states "Much of this information has previously been made public, including through Senate Estimates, and in preparatory material released for the Afghanistan debate in Parliament." Sean Parnell of The Australian was one of the applicants and has this piece in the paper today, with signs already the brief is contributing to public debate.
