I was curious as to whether that really was the only public submission
to such an important enquiry, and so I asked the committee
secretariat. Their response:
The Committee has received numerous submissions, but
the winter recess means these documents cannot be
formally approved for publication until mid August.
This is just a product of the timing I'm afraid, but
it does create an unfortunate impression that the
inquiry hasn't generated much interest. This should
be rectified over the next fortnight or so as material
goes up on the web. We have also given quite a few
extensions of time to ensure submitters have an
opportunity to provide input and these will appear as
they are received and approved for publication.
The Committee will be deciding its schedule of public
hearings soon, and these are likely to take place
periodically over the next couple of months at least.
So there you go.
