Committees

The committee system in a parliamentary democracy provides a way of achieving greater public input into issues being considered by Parliament. The Parliament of Victoria has an extensive system of committees which hold inquiries into particular issues and call for input from the wider community, including experts, individuals, business and government organisations, to express their views. For further information, please contact the Committee Services Office on 03 8682 2800 or cso@parliament.vic.gov.au.
