Report into Religious Freedom Handed to Government

On Friday the Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull received the final report from the Religious Freedom Review Expert Panel examining whether Australian law adequately protects the human right to freedom of religion.

He thanked the Chair, the Hon. Philip Ruddock, and other members of the Panel for their work in exploring this important issue in such a comprehensive and respectful way.

He said “I look forward to considering the report in detail and will consult with members of the Government before releasing it to the public and responding to its findings”.

He asked the Attorney-General, the Hon. Christian Porter MP, to lead the Government’s deliberation and response to the report.
