Freedom of Information - 1978

Annual General Meeting, 28th October 1978.

'The CCL calls on the Senate Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs to recommend substantial changes to the Freedom of Information Bill, 1978, which has been referred to that Committee for its consideration. It is the view of the CCL that the Bill requires major amendment if it is to provide members of the public with genuine access to government decisions that affect them in their everyday lives, but which are currently withheld from them.'
