The Federal Government has announced a wide-ranging restructure of the public service, with the reduction of the number of Government departments from 18 to 14 and the merger of other departments as part of its reform agenda - including the combining of communications and infrastructure into a new super-department with responsibility for the National Broadband Network (NBN).
Faced with the power of global digital companies, the Federal Government appears to have lost its cojones. Prime Minister Scott Morrison, Treasurer Josh Frydenberg and a host of other Coalition MPs and Senators have waxed voluble about the need to crack down on the likes of Facebook, Google and Twitter, but when it comes to action, they are all like wilting willows.
Shadow attorney-general Mark Dreyfus has slammed the Morrison Government over its tardiness in implementing amendments to the encryption law which was passed last year, saying Finance Minister Senator Mathias Cormann had agreed to do so, and has yet to keep his word nearly a year on.
