The Human Rights Commission welcomes the Prime Minister’s commitment to fulfilling the expectations of those who called for this inquiry into abuse in care.

We also acknowledge the expertise and experience of the Commissioners.

This is a very significant step forward and the Human Rights Commission acknowledges the survivors who for so long have called for an inquiry.

We owe it to the survivors to make sure that the wrongs of the past are never repeated.
