Why We Need The Freedom of Information Act

The Legal Affairs Department under the Prime Minister's Department is conducting a survey on the proposed Freedom of Information Act, which would enable citizens to request information from the government. We speak to a journalist about why this act is important, what it could look like, and the types of information we should have a right to.
