Nicky Hager & Steven Price — The Official Information Act 30 years on

Regular Fabian series of public meetings

On the 30th anniversary of the Official Information Act, it’s worth pausing to ask: is it fit for service? Was it ever? Will the government pick up on the Law Commission’s recent recommendations? Will these make things better or worse? Author and investigative journalist Nicky Hager and media lawyer Steven Price will discuss these issues. Nicky will talk about how the OIA works and his experiences with it over the years. Steven will outline the Law Commission’s proposals and assess whether they’re likely to produce greater government transparency – or a longer menu of options for holding information back.

When November 26th, 2012, 5:30 pm
Location Guildford Terrace, Connolly Hall, Thorndon, Wellington
