Attendance at the Public Hearings

The public, stakeholders, interested groups and organisations are invited by Parliament to attend the hearings, at which they will be given the opportunity to express their views on the Bills.  Contributions made will be considered by the committee and will be part of the committee’s report to be tabled in the National Assembly when the Bills are being debated. 

If you want to make oral representations at a hearing, signify this to the committee clerk before the hearing, if possible, so that he can notify the chairperson to call on you.  An oral representation may be more effective if followed up in writing.  If you are providing a written copy, it is advisable to take as many copies as possible with you for circulation at the hearing.

Written Submissions

Written submissions and correspondence are also welcome and can be:

sent by email – addressed to clerk@parlzim.gov.zw, and marked for attention: Portfolio Committee on Finance and Economic Development; or
