Vic child data bill is passed

In its submission to government on the bill, Liberty Victoria president Jessie Taylor said the organisation supports the concept of streamlining child information sharing, but the legislation presented “goes too far”.

“As it stands, the Bill has the capacity to erode the rights of already vulnerable children and possibly be used for improper purposes. While we support a system of more effective communication between professionals to achieve better and more consistent information should be for a purpose that is objectively definable,” Ms Taylor said.
