Per Capita’s David Hetherington is chairing the People’s Inquiry into Privatisation. He spoke to Rosemarie Milsom on ABC Newcastle about the aims of the Inquiry.
The aim of the Inquiry is to respond to a community concern that privatisation has gone too far, and to develop a people’s view of privatisation.
Typically the privatisation debate exists within the policy expert community, debated as an abstract concept, looked at only in terms of a financial rationale, or a cost benefit analysis.
We want a bottom-up grassroots approach to understand how privatisation affects real people and their lived experience.
He calls on people to come along to one of the public inquiries or make a written submission.
