Over 15,000 submissions were lodged on the Trans-Pacific Partnership ("TPP"). This shows just how many people are deeply concerned about the many impacts of the TPP.

The Resolution of Appointment for the Joint Standing Committee on Treaties (JSCOT) provide the Terms of Reference for this inquiry.

You can view a list of the submissions received at the time the Committee met last month, here. However, the 15, 000 submissions have not yet been uploaded.

Next, there will be public hearings conducted by the Committee, in early May 2016. The Committee is due to table its report on the TPP to Federal Parliament by late June.

Environmental Defenders Office Queensland (EDO Qld) gives a strong legal voice to the environment when needed most.
