Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse

To the Honourable the Speaker and Members of the House of Representatives.

This petition of Vincent Alexander Charles Tough draws to the attention of the House that on 20 January 2016, the Honourable Senator George Brandis QC and the Hon Christian Porter MP, Minister for Social Services did release the following Media Release:

29 January 2016

DEVELOPING A NATIONAL APPROACH TO REDRESS FOR SURVIVORS OF INSTITUTIONAL CHILD SEXUAL ABUSE

As an advocate for "Survivors of Institutional Child Abuse" and an alleged victim of institutional child sexual abuse, I believe I fall within the parameters of the "Royal Commission's Inquiry into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse" and can pro-actively contribute In a very real way to investigating and formulating appropriate policies that best meet the needs for all concerned.

I therefore ask the House to support my request to be party to all relevant discussions between the Commonwealth, the States and any other parties that will develop proposals that may have a direct or marginal effect on matters being discussed either as an independent active participant or independent observer.
