Pri­vacy leak in spot­light

Benalla Ensign - - News -

The Na­tion­als are ea­ger to high­light a re­cent leak of per­sonal de­tails by La­bor in the lead up to Novem­ber’s elec­tion.

Na­tion­als Leader Peter Walsh said the leak should be a con­cern to any­one who has given per­sonal de­tails to the La­bor gov­ern­ment.

‘‘The un­prece­dented re­lease of per­sonal de­tails in Cabinet doc­u­ments by the Pre­mier means coun­try Victorians who gave up their per­sonal de­tails to the An­drews Gov­ern­ment’s Pick My Project and En­ergy Saver web­sites can have ab­so­lutely no con­fi­dence their per­sonal de­tails will be kept se­cure,’’ Mr Walsh said.

Victorians were asked to sub­mit per­sonal in­for­ma­tion, in­clud­ing phone numbers and home ad­dresses, to Pick My Project to be con­sid­ered for fund­ing.

‘‘Daniel An­drews must give all Re­gional Victorians a guar­an­tee that he will not leak this in­for­ma­tion for po­lit­i­cal gain,’’ Mr Walsh said.

‘‘Daniel An­drews’ de­ci­sion to use the pub­lic ser­vice to leak con­fi­den­tial in­for­ma­tion for po­lit­i­cal pay­back has re­sulted in a mas­sive breach of the pri­vacy of in­no­cent Victorians.’’
