Public Petitions Committee


About The Committee

The Public Petitions Committee considers public petitions addressed to the Parliament.  The Committee meets fortnightly on Tuesday mornings when the Parliament is sitting.  Meetings are open to the public and tickets for the public gallery can be booked up to 7 days in advance from Visitor Services.

The agenda and meeting papers are published on this page, normally on the Thursday afternoon before a Tuesday Committee meeting. 

For more details about all petitions under consideration or how to create one, please visit the Public Petitions website.
