The Committee shall inquire into and report on how the Australian Government can better help families balance their work and family responsibilities. The Committee is particularly interested in:

  • the financial, career and social disincentives to starting families;
  • making it easier for parents who so wish to return to the paid workforce; and
  • the impact of taxation and other matters on families in the choices they make in balancing work and family life.

Leslie’s evidence will be at 10:30, Committee Room K, Parliament House, Spring Street, Melbourne on Monday 10 April 2006.
