HA5 Woodhouse Royal Commission

Woodhouse Royal Commission
A Royal Commission of Inquiry into Personal Injury in New Zealand was established by the National Government in 1967 under the chairmanship of Mr Justice Woodhouse (subsequently the Rt Hon Sir Owen Woodhouse).
The report of that Royal Commission, known as the “Woodhouse Report”, proposed a “no fault” system based on five basic principles:
Community responsibility;
Comprehensive entitlement;
Complete rehabilitation;
Real compensation; and
Administrative efficiency.
