The Senate Report into Sport and Physical Education was presented in December, 1992. The process involved submissions by interested members of the community, subsequent interviews of selected individuals in each State/Territory and the completion of the Report taking into account the submissions and interview comments and findings. This paper is part of a larger investigation that involves document analysis of the 219 submissions, the relevant Hansards, and the Report itself. This presentation focuses on data gathered from the submissions and interviews (as reported in the Hansards) as received for the review as well as subsequent interviews of selected key Personnel by the researcher. It questions why some individuals appeared more influential than others and raises some important issues about the impact of the Senate Inquiry.
