COMMITTEES

Committees increase public awareness and debate on issues under consideration by Parliament. They seek to review proposed laws, facilitating more informed policy-making and ensuring greater government accountability.

Committees have the power to call for written submissions, conduct hearings where witnesses give evidence and seek advice from experts. They provide a valuable forum for the public to have their say on issues before the Parliament. Committees report their findings and recommendations to the government of the day to consider and action.
