This discussion paper has been prepared by an independent expert panel appointed by the Queensland Government to undertake a comprehensive review of the Queensland Freedom of Information Act 1992. The Panel was asked to prepare a discussion paper, for community consultation, and then a report with its recommendations.

In conducting the review the Panel has examined relevant existing and proposed Commonwealth, State and Territory laws and practices as well as other recent reviews of freedom of information legislation, nationally and internationally.

Issues raised in the discussion paper include: the purposes and principles of FOI; the exemption provisions; the administration of FOI in Queensland; time and costs of applications; review mechanisms; and the role of the Information Commissioner.
