48 Australian Bureau of Statistics surveys

…(b) The committee is of the opinion that the government should not in the future proceed with any ABS survey unless -

(i) where the survey is significantly different from surveys conducted prior to July 1988, the proposed survey and the proposed terms of conduct of the survey are tabled in Parliament and the parliamentary debate on the proposed survey is fully taken into account, and

(ii) the proposed survey is not extraordinarily burdensome and intrusive towards those members of the Australian public selected for inclusion in the survey.

(2 December 1988 J.1233)
