Treaties tabled 11 December 2013

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 invited interested persons and organisations to make submissions by Friday, 31 January 2014. Submissions for this inquiry have now closed.
