Inquiry into Regional Australia

On Thursday, 25 July 2019 the Assistant Minister for Children and Families, Hon Michelle Landry MP, asked the Committee to inquire into and report on matters affecting Regional Australia.

The Committee is seeking the views of Australians living in our regions, including those under 25 years, via an online survey.

The Committee previously invited interested persons and organisations to make submissions in relation to the terms of reference, by Friday, 8 November 2019.
