Dickson was struggling at times, not used to being challenged I think.

Re: Message from Mr McPhee about Independent review requesting submissions.

When is the deadline for submissions? Nothing on the website.

Also, anyone else notice all mention of the review has been taken off the front page of CPA Australia?
