“The public hearings will be an opportunity to explore in more detail the complex issues facing the Committee as part of its terms of reference,” said Committee Chair Edward O’Donohue.

“We are holding public hearings in Melbourne and in regional areas so that views from across Victoria can be considered when we make our recommendations.”
