Making a submission

Making a submission is easy. You can either use the online submission provided by the Select Committee, or you can write to the Select Committee.

In your submission, you can comment on as much or as little of what’s proposed in the bill as you like. For example, if there’s one aspect of the bill you don’t agree with, you can just comment on that. You can tell the Committee what you like or don’t like about what is in the bill, and/or you can make any of your own suggestions about what you would prefer instead.

When you make a submission, you will be asked if you would like to also speak to your submission in person to the Select Committee. You can choose to, or not to. Either way, your submission is still taken into consideration by the Select Committee. The Select Committee decides how it will meet with people in person. Sometimes it might be online (e.g., zoom) and sometimes they might travel to meet submitters where they live.
