House of Representatives Committees

Treaty tabled on 15 March 2005

A watching brief

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 invites interested persons and organisations to make submissions addressing the terms of reference by Friday 29 April 2005. In order to facilitate electronic publishing of submissions, the committee would prefer them to be emailed to or sent on disk to the secretariat, if possible.
