I had the honour as Chair of the Family and Community Development Committee to table the Report 'Betrayal of Trust' in the Victorian Parliament on November 13, 2013.
This Report was a result of the Inquiry into the Handling of Child Abuse by Religious and Other Non-Government Organisations conducted by the Family and Community Development Committee.
Premier Dr Denis Napthine said, "this is a significant and historic Inquiry and the first of its kind in Australia. The Committee has delivered an outstanding report with 15 very important recommendations."
