House of Representatives Committees

Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade

Committee activities (inquiries and reports)

Scrutiny of the World Trade Organisation

All Committees in the House of Representatives and joint committees of the Senate and House of Representatives for the 40th Parliament ceased to exist upon dissolution of the House of Representatives at 4:59pm, Tuesday 31 August 2004. Therefore, this inquiry has now lapsed.


The Joint Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade on 29 August 2001 resolved to undertake continuous and cumulative parliamentary scrutiny of the World Trade Organisation. It will take the form of an annual one-day public hearing on the WTO with specific reference to its progress towards trade liberalisation and the implications of its activities for Australia.
