On 9 January 2014 the Minister for Health, The Hon Peter Dutton MP, asked the Committee to inquire into and report on skin cancer in Australia.
This is a continuation of the inquiry in the previous parliament conducted by the Standing Committee on Health and Ageing. The former Committee conducted a roundtable public hearing. The transcript can be found here.
Minor alterations to the terms of reference for the inquiry were received by the Committee on 6 March 2014. Consequently, the closing date for written submissions addressing the terms of reference has now been extended to Friday, 28 March 2014 . Please refer to our brochure called preparing a submission for more information. Organisations and individuals who have already provided a submission based on the original terms of reference are welcome to make a supplementary submission addressing the additional term, if desired.
The Committee tabled their Report titled Skin Cancer in Australia: Our National Cancer on 24 March 2015.
