Australia: Submissions from individuals and organisations are due by the close of business on Monday as the government hurries to get the royal commission running by early next year. Read more:

Here extracts from today:

 

The victims support group Broken Rites will call on the federal government to directly contact prison inmates and people on government benefits to make sure they are included in the royal commission on child abuse.

A Broken Rites spokesman, Wayne Chamley, said both groups were likely to have experienced high rates of child abuse but may not be inclined to participate in the royal commission, due to issues with literacy or low levels of trust in authority figures.

He said about 40 per cent of prison inmates had a background of child abuse. Last year, a Department of Juvenile Justice report found 60 per cent of those in the NSW juvenile justice system had a history of child abuse or trauma.

Submissions from individuals and organisations are due by the close of business on Monday as the government hurries to get the royal commission running by early next year.

After the royal commission was announced the government set up a national call centre and email address so that people could have their details passed on to the commission.
