Questionnaire responses

On 22 September 2020 the Committee sent a general questionnaire to each department requesting information to assist it with its Inquiry into the 2020-21 Budget Estimates.

The Committee expects to receive responses to the questionnaire in time for them to be considered before the Budget Estimates hearings. This approach seeks to ensure the Committee undertakes its consideration of the annual budget estimates with access to all the information that is relevant to its inquiry.

The table below sets out the when the questionnaire response was received from the department and a link to the response. Responses were requested by 25 November 2020.
