On 17 September 2015, the Senate referred the Social Services Legislation Amendment (No Jab, No Pay) Bill 2015 to the Senate Community Affairs Legislation Committee for inquiry and report.
Submissions were sought by 16 October 2015. The reporting date is 9 November 2015.
On 9 November 2015, the Senate granted an extension of time for reporting until 11 November 2015.
Please note: the committee has received a large volume of submissions in relation to this inquiry and wishes to assure submitters that each piece of correspondence to the inquiry is being read and considered. The committee has decided to publish all submissions from organisations and a representative sample of the submissions received from individuals. Owing to the sensitive and personal nature of many submissions, the committee has decided that the representative sample will be drawn from those for which it has received clear advice from the submitter supporting publication. The committee has decided not to publish submissions comprising short or general statements, form/campaign letters and petitions, but has noted the concerns raised in them.
