More common sense law

Read this about what had to do, just to check if it could put a Minister’s press release up on the Beehive website:

Brendan Boyle, Secretary of , revealed that his department had sought legal advice on how to handle press statements put out by ministers’ offices since the new law.

He said an in-house legal team had provided the advice, with involvement from Crown Law, the Parliamentary Service and the State Services Commission.

That good old law of common sense strikes again. I mean seriously lawyers from four agencies to set up guidelines on press releases going on a website!
