Individual views and experiences
In addition to accepting formal written submissions from organisations and individuals on specific law reform proposals contained in the Consultation Paper, the ALRC has also provided a confidential survey for members of the public to share their views and experiences on some key questions relevant to the Inquiry.
Completion of the confidential survey does not preclude making a formal written submission on the propositions and technical proposals contained in the Consultation Paper – it is possible to do both.
The survey will remain open until 24 February 2023.

Previous Inquiries and Key Reports Considered
Extensive consultations have been undertaken previously on the issues under examination in the inquiry into Religious Educational Institutions and Anti-Discrimination Laws.
The ALRC is considering submissions and reported findings from previous inquiries, in addition to key reports, published over almost 40 years, from 1984-2022, at Commonwealth, state, and territory levels.

What do you think?
Stakeholder feedback is crucial for developing recommendations for simplification of corporations and financial services legislation.
In this Background Paper, Reflecting on Reforms II – Submissions to Interim Report B, the ALRC provides an overview of the feedback it has received, by way of formal submissions, on questions and proposals outlined in Interim Report B. This feedback will inform the development of proposals in Interim Report C, as well as recommendations for reform made in the ALRC’s Final Report.
