Policy on release of submissions to public consultations

Patrick Conheady made this Freedom of Information request to Department of the Treasury

Department of the Treasury did not have the information requested.

From: Patrick Conheady


Dear Department of the Treasury,

The Department regularly conducts public consultations. As illustrated on the Treasury's website (<http://www.treasury.gov.au/Consultations...>), sometimes the Department publishes submissions and sometimes it does not.

For example, the Department has published 114 non-confidential submissions received in relation to its public consultation on 'Free range egg labelling', which ran between October 2015 and November 2015.

In contrast, the Department has marked submissions for its public consultation on 'Enhanced register of financial advisors', which closed in December 2014, as 'pending'.

Please provide the most recent document containing the Department's policy about the publication of submissions to public consultations, including timing considerations and situations where submissions will not be published.

Yours faithfully,

Patrick Conheady
