Inquiry into the Implementation of the Recommendations of the Lost Innocents and Forgotten Australians Reports (2008 - 2009)


In September 2008, the Senate referred the following matter to the Community Affairs Committee for inquiry and report:

Progress with the implementation of the recommendations in the reports by the Community Affairs References Committee, Lost Innocents: Righting the Record, a report on child migration tabled in August 2001, and Forgotten Australians, a report on Australians who experienced institutional or out-of-home care as children tabled in August 2004.

The committee's report, 'Lost Innocents and Forgotten Australians Revisited', was released in June 2009.
