Commission (into any matters within our regulatory scope), by the Treasurer (into any matter) or by an industry Minister (into any matter concerning a regulated industry).

The Commission may also provide advice to the Treasurer, on request, in relation to any matter, under Section 5(f) of the Essential Services
