Summary "The Committee's Inquiry has a dual focus: overlap and duplication between the Commonwealth and States; and areas of responsibility in which an enhanced role for the States will benefit the federation. The first of these has meant consideration of the assignment of roles and responsibilities between the levels of government in Australia, and examination of how successful these arrangements are. It has also meant addressing the debate on financial relations between the States and the Commonwealth, including the issues of vertical fiscal imbalance, the Commonwealth grants system, and reform of taxation." -- from the Chairman's Foreword p. [vii]
