Public hearings

Public hearings provide participants with the opportunity to elaborate on their submissions, respond to submissions of others, and to discuss issues with Commissioners. Any organisation or person can participate, either to appear and discuss their submissions or to observe the proceedings.

Participant names will be listed on this web page shortly before the scheduled hearing. Parties interested in hearing the views of particular participants are encouraged to attend the scheduled hearing. Please note that no written transcripts will be produced for these hearings. Should the Inquiry team decide to quote particular hearing discussions in its Inquiry final report, the relevant participant will be advised.
