Access to Cabinet Documents
Under Department of the Premier and Cabinet Circular 31 (PC031), the public is able to access Cabinet documents over ten years old. Previously, only documents over twenty years old were available.
Information in Cabinet documents may still be withheld, however, to protect things such as personal privacy, national security, law enforcement and public safety. This may mean you may not be able to view parts of some Cabinet documents.
Proactive Disclosure of Cabinet documents
The index below lists the Cabinet documents available through Freedom of Information. Documents that have already been released can be viewed by clicking on the hyperlinked titles. The index will be updated regularly when further documents are released.
