When Scott Morrison announced the Family Law Inquiry he described it on Channel 7 as an opportunity, “to hear directly from families and listen to them as they give their accounts of how the family law system has been impacting them and how it interacts with the child support system.”
It was billed as the chance for everyday Aussies to speak up and tell their stories in an attempt to force change.
What a joke.
It’s hardly surprising that months down the track, there is mounting anger about the way this Inquiry is being handled.
Hundreds (if not thousands) of submissions have been needlessly classified as confidential and withheld from public view.
