1313. Hon ALISON XAMON to the Leader of the House representing the Attorney General:
I refer to the proposal to extend the Freedom of Information Act 1992 to privately operated health facilities that provide public patient services pursuant to contracts with the Minister for Health.
(1) Does the McGowan government support this proposal?
(2) If yes to (1), when is it anticipated that this reform will be undertaken?
(3) If no to (1), why not?
Hon SUE ELLERY replied:
I thank the honourable member for some notice of the question.
(1)–(3) Given the size and scope of the McGowan government’s legislative agenda, reforms to the Freedom of Information Act 1992 are not expected in this term of government.
