Review timeline extended
The review, which started In June 2017, originally was to see Professor Paterson report to the Chief of Defence Force by 15 December 2017.
This date has been extended to 23 March 2018 to allow time to do justice to all the matters raised during the consultation process.
The Chief of Defence Force will submit the report to the Minister for Veterans, who will present it to Parliament. The Government will then consider the report and decide whether any changes need to be made.
