Expensive fishing trip

Maybe not quite a record, but this report that the National Tertiary Education Union has been told that a Freedom of Information request for information about workplace changes at universities would cost $455,000, is up there with the best of them!

The estimate is based on location and consideration of 347 files and according to the departments involved would take 12 years to process.

Federal Education Minister Julie Bishop dismissed the request as a "fishing exercise".
