Royal Commission into Abuse of People with Disability

In November 2015, the Federal Senate joint (all party) committee recommended a Royal Commission be held into abuse of people with disability.

In May 2016, the Victorian Parliamentary joint (all party) committee inquiry into abuse of people with disability supported that recommendation.

No Royal Commission has been called.
