New appointee for free speech audit

I have been asked to join Irene Moss (see our earlier blog) as Deputy Chair of the independent review of the state of free speech in Australia, commissioned by the major media organisations that make up Australia's Right to Know coalition. One of its major priorities is to look at issues associated with access to government information, and limitations on the public right to be informed.

This news and other developments including some new members that broaden the reach of the coalition to cover just about all media around the country, is mentioned in this article in today's Australian - but I'm not, as reported here Deputy Chair of the coalition. My involvement will be with the independent review of laws, policies and practices that impede freedom of speech.

It should be an interesting and challenging couple of months.
