Seminar | Ensuring a public health lens on proposed legislation: why submissions are needed and how to prepare them

Also available to view live via the internet. See details below.


Making submissions on Bills before Parliament in the Select Committee process is part of the job description of public health workers.
In this seminar, you will learn: how to find out what Bills are being discussed, and when submissions are due; how to write a good submission; how to make a good oral submission; where to find submissions made by others, and more.

Two case studies will be used: the Brokering (Weapons and Related Items) Controls Bill, and the Child Poverty Reduction Bill.
