Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements
The submission to the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements, also known as the Bushfires Royal Commission (RC) was prepared by the Australian Environment & Planning Law Group (AEPLG) of the Law Council’s Legal Practice Section. The AEPLG’s thoughts are with those who lost homes or loved ones. It extends its deepest condolences and pays respect to everybody directly and indirectly affected, including fire fighters and emergency services workers.
The AEPLG notes, with concern that this is not the first such Royal Commission in this area undertaken, being preceded by the 2009 Victorian Bushfires Royal Commission, the report for which was released in July 2010.
