    New media release at Media Releases – Parliament of Australia

    The Australian Parliament’s Health, Aged Care and Sport Committee will be holding public hearings in Melbourne on Tuesday, 11 July 2017 and Sydney on Wednesday, 12 July 2017 as part of its Inquiry into the Use and Marketing of Electronic Cigarettes and Personal Vaporisers in Australia.

    ...

    Recent research has found that over 50 per cent of e-cigarette users in New South Wales are using them to help either cut down their smoking of traditional cigarettes or to quit smoking. ‘The Committee will meet with experts to discuss what impact the increasing use of e-cigarettes might have on tobacco smoking rates.’ Mr Zimmerman said.

    ...

    The hearings will be broadcast live at aph.gov.au/live.

    PUBLIC HEARING DETAILS:

    Melbourne
    9.30 am to 12.15 pm, Tuesday, 11 July 2017
    Committee Room G3, Parliament of Victoria, MELBOURNE

    Sydney

    Does anyone know if these meetings are open to the public? I'm having trouble navigating the NSW Parliament site to find a 'register your interest/attendance' page..

    Crikey, while I was floundering around the site trying to submit to this Inquiry, stumbled across this Senate Inquiry, accepting submissions until the 4th of August
    http://www.aph.gov.au/search/url/Inquiry/25490_29_
    Should we duplicating, and submitting here as well?

    Wow! That's an inquiry re Senator Leyonhjelm's bill. Well found!

    I'd say yes, it needs a separate submission.

    Yeah I was gonna tell you guys about that one after this one closed. It's important but I don't think it's as important as the house of reps one.

    I just rang the inquiry secretary to ask a few questions and the reason no new submissions are up on the gov website is because all committee members have to read and approve them before they are uploaded and parliament isn't sitting at the moment.
    He assures me its just a procedural thing and they will get to it.
    Ps - is anyone attending in Melb on Tues?
