Parliamentary inquiries

Inquiries are an opportunity for the public to have input into issues being considered by Parliament. The inquiry process is managed by a committee and inquiries are referred to a committee through a terms of reference. The work of inquiries facilitates an in-depth investigation of issues to assist with better legislative decisions, direct public input into parliamentary and policy processes, public debate and awareness of issues.
