983. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Premier:
(1) Does the government intend to introduce privacy legislation this term?
(2) If yes to (1), when?
(3) If no to (1), why not?
(4) If yes to (1), which individuals or organisations have been consulted in the development of a bill?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
(1)–(4) The government is preparing data-sharing legislation that will also address privacy. The Department of the Premier and Cabinet is leading the project, which will be a priority in 2018. Interest groups will be consulted in the development of this bill.
