This will be the last Survey for several months, with Commercial Radio Australia having already put Surveys 3, 4 and 5 on hold due to Government restrictions related to the COVID-19 impact. Survey 6 is due to be collected from July 12 to September 19 and be reported on September 29 but that too will be dependent on Government restrictions.
