RICHARDSON REVIEW
 

Today’s release of the unclassified report of the Richardson review of the legal framework governing the Australian National Intelligence Community is long overdue.
 
Labor welcomes its release but remains deeply concerned that the Government has sat on this report since December 2019.
 
Given the unclassified report runs to 1300 pages and includes 203 recommendations, and has only been provided to Labor today, Labor will now carefully study this report before providing our response.  
 
Labor sincerely thanks Dennis Richardson for his dedication and service in producing his review.
