Executive summary

The Law Council of Australia welcomes the opportunity to provide a submission to the Senate Standing Committee on Legal and Constitutional Affairs (the Standing Committee) inquiry into the Public Interest Disclosure Amendment (Review) Bill 2022 (Cth) (PIDAR Bill).

The Law Council generally supports the Australian Government’s proposed amendments to the Public Interest Disclosure Act 2013 (Cth) (PIDA) insofar as the PIDAR Bill seeks to implement, in part, recommendations made by Mr Philip Moss AM in 2016,1 the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services (PJCCFS) in 2017,2 and the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS) in 2020 for the improvement of federal whistleblower laws.3
