Fuel Taxation Inquiry: Update to Groups and Individuals Who Have Made Submissions to the Committee
SUBMISSIONS AND CONSULTATIONS
The Committee inquiring into fuel taxation wishes to thank all those who have made submissions in response to its Issues Paper.
Over 300 submissions have been received - from individuals, major companies, small businesses, industry, community and environmental organisations and government.
The Committee is grateful for the time and effort that has gone into the preparation of all submissions made to the Inquiry.
The Inquiry has now met with around 50 groups in a series of one-on-one consultations held in Brisbane, Sydney, Canberra, Melbourne and Perth.
Those consultations, and the submissions, have highlighted strongly held positions on fuel tax - and fuel generally - and that a range of views exist on the issues before the Committee.

SUBMISSIONS NOW ON THE WEB
The Committee is posting submissions received on its website (http://fueltaxinquiry.treasury.gov.au) and encourages those who have made submissions to examine others for alternative points of view and if necessary, respond to the Inquiry.
This will assist the Committee with its analysis. Given the Inquiry's reporting date of March, timely responses would be greatly appreciated.
OTHER INQUIRY ACTIVITIES
In addition to submissions and consultations, the Inquiry has assembled and studied other publications and reports into fuel taxation arrangements. Three background papers, in addition to the Issues paper, have been prepared and posted on the website:
The Inquiry has also undertaken examination of fuel tax arrangements in overseas jurisdictions.
