On 4 July 2019 the Senate referred the Murray-Darling Basin Commission of Inquiry Bill 2019 to the Environment and Communications Legislation Committee for inquiry and report by 19 September 2019.
Information regarding the bill can be found at the committee's website under 'Current Inquiries'. The committee invites you or your organisation to make a submission to this inquiry. Submissions are due by 26 July 2019.
The committee encourages the lodgement of submissions in electronic form and it is possible to lodge a submission through the committee's website. Alternatively submissions can be lodged via email. All submissions should include the author's full name, phone number and postal address on a separate covering letter.
Please note that a submission becomes a committee document, and must not be disclosed to any other person until it has been accepted by the committee. Unless you have requested that your submission remain confidential, it will be published on the committee's website after the committee has examined and accepted it, and authorised its publication. Once a committee has authorised the release of a submission, subsequent publication is protected by parliamentary privilege.
