Press Release: New Zealand Government
The Health Select Committee has received over 19,000 submissions in response to the Petition of Hon Maryan Street and 8974 Others.
The Committee Clerks have processed 19,477 submissions so far and are continuing to process the remainder. The final number will be announced in due course. When all of the submissions have been processed the committee will begin hearing oral submissions as soon as possible. Before these can be arranged, the committee will need to know who has made submissions and who wishes to be heard in person. At that point, hearings will be arranged. The committee has made no determinations on the time-frame for this process and will provide further details as they become available.
The committee thanks all who have taken the time to make a submission.
