Jonathan Crowe, Rachael Burgin

Research output: Other contributionSubmission to governmentResearch


The Commission’s proposals come at the end of a long process of
consultation with community and stakeholders. While these efforts should be applauded,
we retain serious concerns about the capacity of the drafted proposals to respond to the
issues raised by earlier submissions. In particular, it is unclear how these draft proposals
will respond to the legal failures highlighted by the R v Lazarus.
