The performance and integrity of Australia’s administrative review system

On 20 October 2021, the Senate referred an inquiry into the performance and integrity of Australia’s administrative review system to the Legal and Constitutional Affairs References Committee for inquiry and report by 31 March 2022.

The committee agreed to seek an extension of the reporting date to 30 June 2022, which was agreed to by the Senate on 29 March 2022. A substantive interim report was tabled on 31 March 2022, which took account of the 38 submissions received and outlined the committee’s views and recommendations.

This process enabled the committee to consider the issues raised in, and conclude its examination of, the terms of reference. As such, the committee is of the view that re-referral of the inquiry in the 47th Parliament is not necessary.

Senator the Hon Kim Carr Chair
