My Personal Information

In general, all submissions are public documents. This means they may be published online and in committee's reports. All submissions will have contact details removed. This includes your address, phone number, email and signature. If you do not want your submission published, you may request the committee treat it as confidential. To do this, choose the option “I request the committee review my submission for confidential protection” in Step 3.


All submissions accepted by the committee are protected by parliamentary privilege. This means no legal action can be taken against you, and you can't be subject to discrimination, in relation to the evidence in your submission. The Committee may decide to publish your submission under 'name witheld' to ensure protection, but the contents of your submission will still be available. If you publish your submission in another way, for example on your website, that publication will not be protected by parliamentary privilege.
