The Commission of Audit report is to be released by the Australian government on Thursday

John Robertson


The Commission of Audit report is to be released by the Australian government on Thursday. A press lock-up in Canberra is scheduled for between 10 am and 2 pm. This means information will start flowing two hours before ASX closing. The release timing seems needlessly disruptive for the market. It potentially takes away the level playing field for investors if any market sensitive policy issues are raised. It is a pity the government could not wait until after the market closes.
