Petitions List

Due to the impacts of COVID-19 on the House sitting pattern, some petitioning activities may be interrupted. This includes the presentation of petitions and ministerial responses which would normally occur when the House of Representatives is sitting.

The Committee aims to keep these interruptions to a minimum. It expects to meet regularly to consider petitions and allow approved electronically lodged petitions to gather signatures

Updates about petitioning activity will be made available here as known.
