House of Representatives Committees

| Joint Standing Committee on Treaties

Treaty tabled on 11 May 2011

Information about the Inquiry

The Treaties Committee is empowered by its resolution of appointment to inquire into and report on 'matters arising from treaties and related National Interest Analysis and proposed treaty actions presented or deemed to be presented to the Parliament.

As nearly all treaty actions proposed by the Australian Government are tabled in Parliament, this type of review activity accounts for much of the Committee's work.

The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions addressing the terms of reference by Friday 10 June 2011. Please refer to our brochure called  preparing a submission for more information.

The Treaties committee is currently trialling an online submission system to assist in the efficient processing of submissions.    To assist with this trial, the Committee would prefer submission to be made  online  where possible, or emailed to or sent on disk or CD-ROM to the Committee Secretariat in Microsoft Word ® or Portable Document Format (PDF).
