Summary

The terms of reference for the study emphasised Aboriginal involvement, so apart from this regular interaction with the Committee, a great deal of external consultation was done, both in small meetings and on an individual basis. This report tries to give generous expression to Aboriginal input, often through direct quotes that preserve a range of opinions and positions on the issues at hand.
