Religious Freedom Review Expert Panel; Order for the Production of Documents
On 18 May 2018 the former Prime Minister received the final report into religious freedoms from the expert panel. The panel received over 15,000 public submissions and held around 90 consultation meetings representing a diversity of views. The government thanks the expert panel for their work, and the Australian people who took their time to have their say in exploring the important issue in such a comprehensive and respectful way. The government is undertaking detailed consideration before releasing it to the public and responding to its findings in the near future. The panel considered the issues involved in the review very carefully, and it is important that the government has the opportunity to do so.
