NZ government should sign the Declaration on Parliamentary Openness (http://www.openingparliament.org/declaration).
Why the contribution is important
The Decalaration has been aorund since 2012 and has a number of signatories. It promotes transparency and asks for a culture of openness in each jurisdiction. For New Zealand in partocular it wold allow us to move through a series of reforms that wold take pressure off OIA requests and promote openness as a dfault position. As it is signing up to something then it is a firsts tep and one that is clearly and demonstrablty measurable for a Naitonal Action plan.
