I have found myself having to draft a Freedom if Information request to the ACT government and it got me thinking about how well it works.
Vicki Dunne appears to make a habit of using FoI to find things out; some may say even more so than the Canberra Times does.
There seem to be relatively few media organisations in Australia which use FoI with any kind of frequency, possibly because of the associated costs.
What do we think about FoI? Is it the last bastion of government transparency? And what sort of questions work best in extracting information from the ACT Government?
