Australian Information Commissioner tells Senate Estimates 'still working from home'

I only caught the end of Senate Estimates for the Office of Australian Information Commissioner so await the transcript with interest.

In the meantime have a read of this account from Markus Mannheim Public Service Editor The Canberra Times: Government denies starving FOI watchdog of funds even though he works from home. 

I tuned in in time to hear Commissioner John McMillan say the current situation was "awkward" and "undesirable."

Sean Parnell FOI Editor of The Australian tweeted McMillan was "too polite' in the circumstances and 'too diplomatic." I guess McMillan couldn't possibly say "shameful."
