#AUSTRALIA: Proposed Bill Would Extend Secrecy To Nation's Cabinet

[world politics news]

Prime Minister Scott Morrison has introduced a Bill to protect the secret discussions of state premiers within National Cabinet.

The Bill’s purpose is to extend the secrecy protections of Federal Cabinet to cover the contents of National Cabinet.

It comes after the embarrassing ruling from the Federal Court when Justice White determined that National Cabinet was not a real Cabinet and must open itself to Freedom of Information requests under the Freedom of Information Act 1978.
