- the return to the Bill of provisions for dealing with requests for classified information in terms of the Promotion of Access to information Act;
- for the inclusion of a "public-interest defence" to allow a whistleblower or journalist who discloses or publishes classified information to argue that the disclosure was justified in the public interest;
- for the public interest override to be reformulated; and
- for a review of the presently very narrow provisions for automatic declassification of old-‐order classified information.
These proposals are detailed in the attached summary explanation.
