The submission to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Human Rights in relation to its inquiry into the Social Security (Parenting payment participation requirements – class of persons) Instrument 2021 [F2021L00064] (Instrument) was prepared by the Law Council of Australia.
The submission focuses on the inquiry’s second term of reference; the extent to which the ParentsNext program operates flexibly in practice, such that it treats different cases differently. In this regard, the Law Council has considered the scope of the Instrument and its potential application to Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.
