Submission to Senate Select Committee Inquiry into the Abbott Government’s Commission of Audit

04 February 2014

The Alliance highlights some of the key concerns for people of rural and remote Australia for this Inquiry, based on its earlier submission to the National Commission of Audit. These include: the nature and extent of any proposed service cuts and their impact on the more than 6.7 million people who live in rural and remote areas; the impact of cuts to the public service on its capacity to be aware of and advise the Government on rural and remote health and wellbeing; the effect of any proposed changes in the current split of roles and responsibilities between the Commonwealth Government and State and Territory Governments on services for communities in rural and remote areas; and improving the fairness of revenue raising and the integrity of the structural budget balance in the medium to long term.
