Written answers (Question to Children)

As I announced on 14 February 2020, the Government has granted a short extension in order for the Commission of Investigation to complete its inquiries and finalise all matters required to deliver a final report.

The Commission is now required to submit its final report to the Minister for Children and Youth Affairs by the 26 June 2020.

There are a number of procedural matters to be considered prior to publication of a Commission's final report. While there is no projected date for publication I would like to see the final report published as soon as practicable after its submission. Arrangements for publication of the report will ultimately be a matter for Government.
