I think the problem was there was nothing to announce. Agreement re 'national plan' never reached on detail and getting that agreement is as problematic as ever.I really don't think it's good enough that the government hasn't even had the courtesy to make a formal announcement.
That's how Cabinets have always worked, just google 'cabinet confidentiality'.National Cabinet was designed to ensure there is almost no transparency of its proceedings and decisions,
In fact there is a right to information from this forum, as the AAT held that it wasn't a cabinet committee at all. This will ensure any minutes are very vague.
