Stage Three - Exploring and Discussing
Over the first half of 2014, the Expert Panel members considered and researched the many ideas and issues raised with them over the ‘listening and scoping’ stage, and that were summarised in What We Have Heard.
On 6 August 2014, the Panel released its second public report, Our Ideas for Reform. This report contains 27 reform ideas that, in the Panel’s view, best addressed these issues. Consultation with stakeholders was held over the next 7 weeks culminating on 26 September 2014.
The Panel released this report so that people could have an opportunity to consider these reform ideas, and influence the Panel members’ thinking before they made their final recommendations to the government in December 2014. Submissions made to the panel over the consultation stage are available.
