Stakeholders have important role in child abuse inquiry

THE Federal Government has released a consultation paper as it prepares the ground for the royal commission into child abuse.

Stakeholders will have until next Monday to provide views in writing on what the terms of reference for the commission should be; the form of the investigation; the number of royal commissioners, and; the timetable and reporting arrangements.

In a statement released late yesterday the government said it wanted all stakeholders, especially survivors of child sexual abuse and their families, to help shape the development of the royal commission.

The paper is available online at dpmc.gov.au.
