Oversight of redress related recommendations
The submission to the Joint Select Committee on the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse in relation to its oversight of the implementation of redress related recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was prepared by the Law Council.
The Law Council understands that the Joint Select Committee is inquiring into:
(a) the Australian Government policy, program and legal response to the redress related recommendations of the Royal Commission, including the establishment and operation of the Commonwealth Redress Scheme and ongoing support of survivors; and
(b) any matter in relation to the Royal Commission's redress related recommendations referred to the Joint Select Committee by a resolution of either House of the Parliament.
This submission is therefore focussed on those aspects of the national redress scheme that appear inconsistent with the recommendations of the Royal Commission and continue to cause concern to the Law Council.
