At the dissolution of the House of Representatives on Thursday 11 April 2019 this committee ceased to exist. Any inquiries that were not completed have lapsed.
However, as a statutory Committee, the Parliamentary Joint Committe on Intelligence and Security will be re-established in the 46th Parliament. On 2 April 2019 the Committee commenced three statutory reviews as listed below under current inquiries, and called for submissions. The Committee is required by legislation to report on each of these reviews by specified dates in the 46th Parliament.
Prospective submitters are advised that any submission to the Committee's inquiry must be prepared solely for the inquiry and should not be published prior to being accepted by the Committee. Documents do not attract parliamentary privilege until they are accepted by the Committee of the 46th Parliament. Documents submitted during the election period will be held by the Secretariat and provided to the Committee as established in the 46th Parliament. Submissions are requested by 1 July 2019. Further information about making a submission to a parliamentary committee inquiry is available here.
