My question is to the Prime Minister. I remind the Prime Minister that she promised to preside over a government that was 'more open, more accountable and more transparent'. Why then has the Prime Minister failed to comply with the decision of the Information Commissioner for the release of the documents relating to the appointment of her communications director, who holds a 457 visa?

As the Deputy Leader of the Opposition ought to be aware, I do not personally make decisions about Freedom of Information matters.
