Deadline for the Protection of Information Bill drafting extended
29 January 2011
The committee that has been tasked with drafting the Protection of Information Bill has been given another two months to get the bill completed.
Yesterday was the last day for the committee to report to Parliament on the Secrecy Bill.
The chairperson of the committee Cecil Burgess says they have until the end of March to fix the heavily-criticised piece of legislation.
The Democratic Alliance has welcomed the extension.
