What's the basis of that contention? Several years ago when the ALRC 
conducted a review concerning privacy laws, several ALRC staff (inc. a very 
senior one) visited Brisbane and met with me and another person (we were 
representing EFA). IIRC the meeting was about 1.5 hours. As I understand 
it, they also met with various other (non-legal and non-industry) 
organisational reps and other people in Brisbane and elsewhere around the 

If in relation to the "classification" review, if they only "consult" with 
legal firms, then the review will have no legitimacy at all, and I'm sure 
both the ALRC and the government know that.
