Electoral Finance Bill

Public submissions have been called on the Electoral Finance Bill.

The closing date for submissions was Friday, 7 September 2007.

The purpose of this bill is to strengthen the law governing electoral financing and broadcasting, in order to provide more transparency and accountability, prevent undue influence of wealth, and promote participation in parliamentary democracy.

The bill is available for download from the ‘Related documents’ panel. Print copies can be ordered online from Bennetts Government Bookshops.

The committee requires 2 copies of each submission if made in writing. Those wishing to include any information of a private or personal nature in a submission should first discuss this with the clerk of the committee, as submissions are usually released to the public by the committee. Those wishing to appear before the committee to speak to their submissions should state this clearly and provide a daytime telephone contact number. To assist with administration please supply your postcode and an email address if you have one.
