Post-enactment reports relating to two pieces of primary legislation have been carried out by my Department (see table) since the passing of Standing Order 164A (Post-enactment report) in June 2016.

The Childcare Support Act 2018 was enacted on 2 July 2018. While all of the provisions of the Act have been commenced, a review of the functioning of the Act has not yet been undertaken. In accordance with the section 26 of the Act, the Minister will conduct a review of the operation of the Scheme 12 months after the first payment under the Affordable Childcare Scheme (known as the National Childcare Scheme) has been made.
