The Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements has been given until 28 October to present its final report, representing a two-month extension. Emergency Management Minister David Littleproud said commission chair Mark Binskin had sought the extension because the impact of COVID-19 had made it hard for some stakeholders to provide it with information in a timely manner. Littleproud has also announced that the federal government will allocate $88.1 million in funding over 10 years for additional research into bushfires and natural hazards.
