Published on 21 August 1985.

The interim report, ALRC Report 26 (tabled 21 August 1985), contained a detailed assessment of the law of evidence as applied in federal and Territory courts and recommendations for reform. A draft Bill was attached to that report to stimulate public discussion. The report consists of two volumes.

The legislation contained in the interim report was the subject of extensive consultation. The ALRC revised the interim legislation and published it in the final report. Accordingly, the two reports need to be read together to obtain a comprehensive picture of the ALRC's work on this reference.
