Abuse inquiry terms put on hold

A decision on the terms of reference for the child sex abuse Royal Commission has been delayed until next year.

Attorney-General Nicola Roxon yesterday said the terms, expected this month, would not be ready until January as consultation with states and territories following the December COAG meeting continued.

"More than 800 individuals and organisations have provided input into the Terms of Reference so far and I would like to thank everyone for their valuable contributions,'' Ms Roxon said.

The commission, set up in November by Prime Minister Julia Gillard, will issue its initial report within 18 months, including any early recommendations - such as for the final report deadline.

The inquiry is being established to look into how child sex abuse allegations have been handled by religious, community and state institutions.
