Publishing your submission to the RCB inquiry [SEC=OFFICIAL]

From Robert Cross.


Dear submitter

Thank you for your submission to the Tribunal’s inquiry into medallic recognition for service with Rifle Company Butterworth.

The purpose of this email is to inform you that, prior to holding public hearings for this inquiry (which are yet to be scheduled), the Tribunal intends to publish submissions to the inquiry on its website where the submitting party has consented to us doing so.  We are taking this step to ensure that everyone with an interest in the inquiry is given the best possible opportunity to view as many of the submissions as possible, including the submission made by the Department of Defence, and has the further opportunity to provide the Tribunal with comments on the views and evidentiary documents provided by submitters.

While you have provided us with your consent to make your submission publicly available, we are nonetheless taking this step to notify you of our intention to do so, and to give you an opportunity to revisit your decision in light of our intention to publish it on our website.  If you do not wish for us to make your submission publicly available, please advise us by Monday 8 August 2022 as we intend to publish the submissions on our website in that week.  Please note that personal information such as your address, telephone number, email and IP addresses (if supplied) will be redacted from the published submission.

Should you wish to make a supplementary submission to the inquiry having read through the other published submissions, we ask that you do so as soon as practicable.

Thank you for your attention to this request.  Again, if you do not wish for us to publish your submission, please advise us, by return email to [email protected] by 8 August 2022.  If you have any questions in relation to this request, please feel free to contact us on (02) 6266 1019.
