Labor to push for new Senate inquiry into My Health Record

Labor has called for another Senate inquiry into the move to make the My Health Record an opt-out system, announcing it will ask the crossbench to support a reference to the Senate Finance and Public Administration References Committee.

The move follows intense public debate on the measure, despite a Senate inquiry being held in 2015 and a bill authorising the health minister to move the system to opt-out passing both houses of parliament with bipartisan support that year.
