House of Representatives Committees

Joint Standing Committee on Treaties

Committee activities (inquiries and reports)

Treaties referred on 16 November 2010

The treaties listed in this reference were tabled in parliament on 12 May, 15, 16, 21, 22 and 24 June 2010 during the 42nd Parliament. The Committee had not reported on these treaties when the 42nd Parliament was prorogued and the Committee ceased to exist. As a consequence, the inquiries lapsed.

Traditionally, new treaties committees have sought to complete inquiries that lapsed as a result of the prorogation of Parliament. To do so, the Committee must receive a reference in accordance with the resolution of appointment.

The Committee received such a reference on 16 November 2010.

The Committee invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions addressing the terms of reference by Friday, 28 January 2011. Please refer to our brochure called preparing a submission for more information.

In order to facilitate electronic publishing of submissions, the Committee would prefer them to be emailed to or sent on disk or CD-ROM to the Committee Secretariat in Microsoft Word® or Portable Document Format (PDF).
