Cabinet narrows scope of Royal Commission of Inquiry into Abuse in Care

April 30, 2021 at 2:35 PM

From the NZFVC

The government has announced changes to the Royal Commission of Inquiry into Abuse in Care.

Minister of Internal Affairs Jan Tinetti announced changes to the terms of reference for the Royal Commission of Inquiry into Abuse in Care. The changes include narrowing the scope of the Royal Commission and changing some of the reporting timelines.

The Beehive media release states that "Cabinet has adjusted the Royal Commission’s terms of reference by:

  • Allowing the Royal Commission a small extension of up to five months to give it time to complete its final report back by June 2023,
  • Moving the due date forward to October 2021 for its report on redress for survivors of historical abuse and how the redress process can be improved, so Government can move more quickly to make improvements, and
  • Narrowing the Royal Commission’s scope by removing the requirement for it to look at modern-day care policy settings to avoid duplication with other reviews already underway, and so it can focus on the causes, extent and nature of historical abuse in care."

Minister Tinetti said the changes would ensure the Commission could deliver the final report in 2023.
