Establishment and Function
In August 1954, a Decentralisation Advisory Panel was established. It consisted of the Minister of State Development and Decentralisation as Chairman, with twelve members representing country industries, the Victorian Decentralisation League and the unions. Its task was to review the problems associated with the establishment and operation of secondary industry in country areas.
The Panel met seven times over the next twelve months, and looked at such issues as transport for decentralised industries, housing in country towns and the effect of secondary industry on town development.
