Hawke Review

Bit late because of holidays, but look the Hawke  FOI Review has come out, with a handy new practice guide.

The Review has sought to retain the free public access provisions in regards to application fees, personal information, and the initial 5 hours of processing.


We will look forward to see whether any new government implements the recommendations.
