At the dissolution of the Senate and the House of Representatives on 9 May 2016 for a general election on 2 July 2016, the parliamentary committees of the 44th Parliament ceased to exist. Therefore inquiries that were not completed have lapsed and submissions cannot be received. However, information about the inquiries is still available on this website.
Information on this committee in the 45th Parliament will be presented here as soon as it is available.
On 24 February 2016, the Senate resolved to establish the Select Committee relating to the establishment of a National Integrity Commission. The committee is to inquire into the adequacy of the Australian Government’s legislative, institutional and policy framework in addressing corruption and misconduct and whether a national integrity commission should be established.
The closing date for submissions is 20 April 2016. The committee is required to report to the Senate on or before 22 September 2016.
