6 May start for Budget Estimates hearings

Budget hearings

Nine days of Budget Estimates hearings commence on Friday 6 May.

The public hearings by the Public Accounts and Estimates Committee will be held in the Legislative Council Committee Room at Parliament House.

They will be webcast at: www.parliament.vic.gov.au/video-and-audio/live-broadcasting

Estimates hearings are a key process for government accountability and transparency. They involve detailed questioning by Committee members on how the government plans to spend public funds.

Transcripts from the hearings will be uploaded progressively to the Committee’s website.

The Committee has just presented to Parliament its report on the 2013-14 and 2014-15 Financial and Performance Outcomes.
