In December 2019, the Inquiry supplied content from its draft report to relevant parties, in order to test it for accuracy and to meet the principles of natural justice.
The report will be finalised in the new year. Inquiry Chair Dame Silvia Cartwright intends to present her completed report, with findings and recommendations, to the Governor-General by 31 March 2020. The report will then be passed to the Government to consider.
The Inquiry's Community Reference Group met formally for the final time with Dame Silvia to complete its input, and was thanked by Dame Silvia for its contribution.
Dame Silvia thanks everyone for their interest and participation in 2019, and wishes everyone a safe and happy holidays.
The Inquiry will be closed for the holiday period, and will be back to work again on 13 January 2020.
