This amendment is relatively straightforward. We are suggesting that section 26 be replaced with the following.
There is a requirement where, if an institution believes that material is going to be published by the government, and currently it says within 90 days, then they can withhold it. We're suggesting that that be limited or reduced to 60 days.
Proposed section 26.1 would say that, if the Information Commissioner recommends after an investigation, the head may disregard an access request that's contrary to the purposes of the act, which is again, something recommended by our Information Commissioner.
