On 28 October 2021, the House of Representatives referred an inquiry into Corporations Amendment (Improving Outcomes for Litigation Funding Participants) Bill 2021 to the Parliamentary Joint Committee on Corporations and Financial Services.
The committee welcomes submissions to this inquiry.
However, it is important to note that the committee is not obliged to accept every document it receives as a submission. The committee has the option to accept a document as correspondence, or not accept it at all depending on its content.
Odgers Senate Practice clearly indicates:
"…a submission made to a committee becomes a committee document, and it is for the committee to decide whether to receive it as evidence and whether to publish it."
Drafting a submission
To assist your document being received and accepted as a submission to the inquiry, we recommend your comments stay focused on the provisions of the bill.
Documents that don't address the provisions of the bill and diverge onto extraneous issues are unlikely to be accepted as submissions.
