I was pleased to Chair my first virtual committee hearing for the Social Issues Committee inquiry into the State Records Act 1998 and the Policy Paper on it’s Review.
The State Records Act 1998 is under review and reforms to the legislative framework for the State Archives and Records Authority of NSW and Sydney Living Museums have been proposed.
The Committee is pleased to be able to contribute to this review process.'
The Social Issues Committee will consider the adequacy of the Act in meeting citizens' needs, and the role and purpose of these two institutions. The committee will also examine the operation and effect of the proposed reforms in the Policy Paper on the review of the Act.
The inquiry will be holding two further virtual hearings on July 1 and July 30, 2020.
