Statement on Budget lock-up


All Budget lock-up security measures are currently being reviewed as they are after each Budget event. The intent is to improve the security and integrity of Treasury lock-ups without compromising the media’s ability to report.

At this morning’s Senate Estimates hearing, the Secretary stated his preferred approach to the IT security arrangements for these events in the future.

There are a range of matters to be worked through to implement these changes including working with media outlets on their requirements. The final form and arrangements will be decided in conjunction with the Treasurer’s Office.
