Open up Parliament too!

By Steven | June 11, 2010

The latest Ministers’ expense relevations once again demonstrate the value of transparency and the shakiness of the assurances that “systems are in place to ensure propriety”. Good on National for increasing the level of transparency. But since they’re so hot on it, why not bring Parliament under the Official Information Act too (and the Attorney-General as well), so that we can look at MPs’ expenses as well, including the use of Parliamentary income streams for electioneering purposes.
