A Senate committee is calling for submissions by 21 August 2015
Committees provide an opportunity for organisations and individuals to particpate in policy making and to have their views placed on the public record and considered as part of the decision-making process.
The 2015-2016 Budget Estimates hearings were held from Monday, 25 May to Friday, 5 June 2015.
The Senate delegates a range of tasks to its committees. As committee proceedings are flexible, they are able to meet in a variety of places, receive written submissions and hear evidence on specified matters. Numerous inquiries can be held at the same time, so many different issues can be examined and quickly reported back to the Senate.
Committees provide an opportunity for organisations and individuals to participate in policy making and to have their views placed on the public record and considered as part of the decision-making process.
