Vic responds to child sex abuse inquiry

The Victorian government has accepted in full or in principle 293 of the recommendations made by the national Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse.

The royal commission made 409 recommendations across four reports and the Andrews Labor government released its response on Wednesday.

Attorney-General Martin Pakula said the government had already made progress on several of the recommendations including quashing legal loopholes that prevented victims suing some entities, lifting civil suit time frames, and requiring organisations that supervise children to report suspicions of abuse.
