Notes:

  • An individual PIR can cover several pieces of legislation within the same review.
  • Primary PIRs tend to refer to an evaluation of specific clauses within an Act, and not a review of the full Act.
  • This information is only held for internal administrative reasons and may not be exhaustive, for example, due to machinery of government changes to departmental structure in the past decade.
