Attorney-General Guy Barnett has declared that the response to the Commission of Inquiry into child abuse in Tasmanian schools, hospitals, out-of-home care and youth justice settings will be the most important work of the government to date and in the future.
The government has released its lengthy response to the commission's 191 recommendations which will be delivered in three stages between 2024 and 2029.
Mr Barnett said this would include 54 legislative reforms to be led by the Department of Justice.
He said legislation would be tabled in the first sitting week of parliament next year to establish an independent monitor to oversee the government's progress on implementation of the recommendations.
Mr Barnett said the government would develop a detailed Child Sexual Abuse Reform Strategy and Action Plan, to be released in July 2024.
Ten of the commission's recommendations to the government will not be met within the commission's set time frame and five recommendations are planned to be delivered earlier than expected.
Mr Barnett said the recommendations that would be delivered later than proposed by the commission had a number of complexities that necessitated a delay.
"I want to reassure our community that we will not wait to implement phases two and three recommendations," he said.
"In many cases, we have started work on these reforms already and if we can get them done sooner, we will.
"This is the most important work of our government today and going forward."
Labor's spokewoman for children and young people Sarah Lovell said the government's response to the commission's final report had so far been lacking.
"The victim survivors have done their bit, its time now for the government - and all of us - to do ours," she said.
Greens leader Rosalie Woodruff said the government's response indicated that it could be two years until a development application was submitted to built a new youth justice facility to replace the Ashley Youth Detention Centre.
She said she did not have confidence that the government was acting urgently enough to close Ashley as recommended by the commissioners.
Beyond Abuse chief executive Steve Fisher said the response was far beyond what victim-survivors could have expected.
"This is just what we need," he said.
"It's clear, it's concise and I'm blown away.
"It's more than survivors could have ever asked for from the final report."
