We’d like to thank everybody who has helped the ALRC in developing our recommendations, whether through consulting with us, making a submission, or simply by maintaining an interest in this Inquiry through your subscription to this enews.
The ALRC would especially like to thank Professor Lee Godden, as Commissioner in charge of the Inquiry, and members of the Advisory Committee, who willingly shared their knowledge, experience and insights with us throughout the inquiry.
What happens now?
As the Final Report is now tabled, this is the last enews we will send for this Inquiry.
The ALRC will formally launch the Report at its offices in Sydney at the end of June, providing an opportunity to present the Report and its recommendations to the community, and to recognise the contribution of everyone involved.
The ALRC’s recommendations do not automatically become law. The Australian Government decides whether to implement the recommendations, in whole or in part, and there is no set time frame in which the Government is required to respond. Implementation of ALRC recommendations is tracked and recorded each year in the ALRC’s Annual Report. We also provide updates about implementation in the ALRC Brief.
