About the report

The response to the discussion paper was extensive. In order to identify the broad range of significant issues raised in public submissions, an interim report was prepared. This report, released by Dr Hawke, outlines the major themes raised in public submissions, the consultation process and the Senate committee inquiry. Dr Hawke invited further public comment on the interim report in general and in particular, on a number of specific areas identified in the report. The period for comment closed on Monday 3 August 2009.
