2019 Call to Parties Statement

10. Royal Commissions of Inquiry

Royal Commissions are the highest form of inquiry on matters of public importance. The recommendations and findings of Royal Commission reports can have a significant impact on the Australian community.

Queensland Law Society calls for a commitment to:

  1. implement the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse and where a recommendation is not adopted and implemented, to provide appropriate justification
  2. the standardisation of the minimum age of criminal responsibility as per the recommendations of the Royal Commission and Board of Inquiry into the Protection and Detention of Children in the Northern Territory
  3. consult with the legal profession on proposed legislative reforms arising from the recommendations of the Royal Commission into Misconduct in the Banking, Superannuation and Financial Services Industry.
