Submission in response to the Government's Options Paper Driving Innovation, Fairness and Excellence 2 Aug 2016

Given the number, complexity and breadth of the issues canvassed, it is important that sufficient time is taken to thoroughly consider all reasonable and practical policy options that emerge as part of this process. As such we are pleased to note that the options paper process represents the beginning of a longer period of consultation, debate and analysis which may also canvas variations and other ideas in addition to those presented in the Government’s paper.
