The Ad Hoc Committee on Protection of Information Legislation (National Assembly) has invited interested individuals and organisations to submit written submissions on the Protection of Information Bill [B6 – 2010] by June 25.
The Bill seeks to provide for the protection of certain information from destruction, loss or unlawful disclosure; to regulate the manner in which information may be protected; to repeal the Protection of Information Act, 1982; and to provide for matters connected therewith, the Parliamentary Monitoring Group says.
Written submissions can be emailed to the Committee Secretary Ms Ntombe Mbuqe at [email protected] by no later than noon on Friday June 25. Public hearings for those selected for verbal presentations will be held at Parliament on Wednesday and Thursday July 21-22.
Mbuqe can be reached at 021 403-2319 or 083 709 8432.
