Clarification of the RIS requirements to reflect agreements between the ALP and the Greens, and the ALP and the Independents
The RIS requirements did not envisage the possibility of post-election undertakings such as those made by the ALP to the Greens and Independents. The Government has agreed to treat these undertakings consistent with the arrangements applying to election commitments for the purposes of the RIS requirements. This clarification is reflected in this correspondence between Minister Wong and Cabinet Secretary Dreyfus.
