Federal ALP on board for FOI reform

Federal Opposition Leader, Kevin Rudd agrees that Freedom of Information reform is needed. As a one time Director General of the Queensland Cabinet Office, he acknowledges his record probably shows he isn't Mother Theresa on the question of access to government information.

To be meaningful however, reform will need to go beyond getting rid of conclusive certificates, the only specific ALP commitment to date.

Mark Day in the Australian is another who tells us why.
