At the dissolution of the Senate and the House of Representatives on 9 May 2016 for a general election on 2 July 2016, the parliamentary committees of the 44th Parliament ceased to exist. Therefore inquiries that were not completed have lapsed and submissions cannot be received. However, information about the inquiries is still available on this website.
On 11 October 2016, the Senate agreed to the committee's recommendation that this inquiry be re-adopted in the 45th Parliament. Information about the re-adopted inquiry is available here.
This is an archived webpage that is no longer updated.
On 26 November 2015, the Senate referred an inquiry into the future of Australia's steel industry to the Senate Economics References Committee for inquiry and report by the last sitting day in June 2016 (30 June 2016).
The closing date for submissions is 15 February 2016.
