Make a Submission


As part of the process of considering a new law, a change to an old one, or as part of an inquiry, a Parliamentary Select Committee - made up of Members of Parliament from different parties - may ask for public submissions. A submission is an opportunity for any member of the public to present their views in support of or against the issue under consideration.

There is no particular way in which a submission should be written but the following websites provide helpful tips. 

To find out what issues are under consideration and what submissions are being called for by Select Committees at any time visit: 

Alcohol Healthwatch encourages you to get involved and write submissions on issues that are important to you. If you need any help or have any questions regarding writing a submission please contact one of our health promotion advisors.
