Questionnaire Responses

On 7 April 2021 the Committee sent a general questionnaire to each department requesting information to assist it with its Inquiry into the 2021-22 Budget Estimates.

The Committee expects to receive responses to the questionnaire in time for them to be considered before the Budget Estimates hearings. This approach seeks to ensure the Committee undertakes its consideration of the annual budget estimates with access to all the information that is relevant to its inquiry.

Responses are requested by 21 May 2021.
