Submission: National Integrity Commission

Submission_cover_NIC

Last week,┬áSimon Breheny and myself sent this submission to the Senate’s select committee relating to the establishment of a ‘National Integrity Commission’.

Such a body would have characteristics that are inconsistent with democratic principles and the rule of law.
