The Institute of Public Affairs (IPA) welcomes the opportunity to provide comments on the scope of the Australian Law Reform Commission’s Review into the Framework of Religious Exemptions in Anti-discrimination legislation. It is the view of the IPA that the terms of reference and the title of the review itself prejudge the outcome, and its direction regarding freedom of speech is overly narrow, omitting several important issues that should be addressed by any review into the legal framework affecting religious freedoms in Australia.
