What is right to information?

New legislation replacing the Freedom of Information Act 1992 came into effect on 1 July 2009:

Right to information (RTI) legislation is the Queensland Government's approach to giving the community greater access to information.

The Queensland Government has made a commitment to provide access to information held by the Government, unless on balance it is contrary to the public interest to provide that information.
 
The right to information reforms aim to make more information available, provide equal access to information across all sectors of the community, and provide appropriate protection for individuals' privacy.
 
For more information visit the Queensland Government right to information website or call 13 QGOV (13 74 68).
