Dear Mr President

Homelessness Bill 2013; Homelessness (Consequential Amendments) Bill - Final Report

Pursuant to Senate standing order 38(7), this letter forms the final report of the Community Affairs Legislation Committee in relation to its inquiry into the Homelessness Bill 2013 and Homelessness (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2013.

On 18 June 2013 the Senate jointly referred the Homelessness Bill 2013 and the Homelessness (Consequential Amendments) Bill 2013 for inquiry and report.   On 5 August 2013, the Governor-General prorogued the 43rd Parliament and dissolved the House of Representatives.   

In view of the calling of the election and the prorogation of the parliament, the committee will not be reporting in detail on this bill. Should a similar bill be re-introduced in the new parliament, the Senate may refer it for inquiry and report.

Yours sincerely,


Senator Claire Moore
Committee Chair
