Our guest the Hon Margaret Stone, Inspector-General of Intelligence and Security, will talk about the role of her office. Margaret is well known from her multiple previous roles: former academic at UNSW law school, former partner at Freehills, and most recently, former Federal Court judge. Her stellar career continues as Inspector-General of IGIS.
Clearly there will be some limits on what Margaret can say, even within our ‘Chatham House’ rules, though, as Margaret has pointed out, under the IGIS legislation one of the objects of the Act is
‘to assist the Government in assuring the Parliament and the public that intelligence and security matters relating to Commonwealth agencies are open to scrutiny, in particular the activities and procedures of the intelligence agencies’.
We can look forward to a fascinating discussion. Non Canberra-based Fellows most welcome.
