    3. Are there cases of which agencies are aware where the proposed principles would not apply, or would be impracticable?
  2. Is the proposed supporting guidance practical?
    1. What other information would be useful for agencies to help them implement the proposed principles?
    2. What other information do complainants need to know about how privacy in relation to complainants of misconduct are handled generally in the APS?
  3. Do the proposed principles and the supporting guidance together provide a sound framework for deciding what information to disclose following a complaint of a breach of the Code of Conduct?
