Queensland RTI gaps under scrutiny
My scepticism about any action regarding Opposition bills introduced into the Queensland Parliament was misplaced-too much exposure to NSW and Federal practices where such bills struggle for oxygen. The Legal Affairs, Police, Corrective Services and Emergency Services Committee is undertaking an inquiry into the Right to Information (Government-Related Entities) Amendment Bill 2011 introduced by shadow attorney general Jarrod Bleijie. Submissions close 4 November with a report in March 2012. Queensland Special Purpose Vehicles and other gaps in the Right to Information Act will be under examination.
