The official schedule for the 2022 Estimates Committee, running from Friday 17 June to Thursday 23 June inclusive, can be viewed at the following link: https://www.parliament.sa.gov.au/en/House-of-Assembly/Programs.

The schedule sets out the relevant dates that Ministers are appearing as well as a breakdown of individual agencies being examined. The proceedings of the Estimates Committees are open to the public and may be viewed from the Strangers Galleries of either chamber at Parliament House, or via the live broadcast on this website.

Estimates Committees are established each year for the purpose of examining the Appropriation Bill (ie. the Budget). They provide an opportunity each year for a more detailed examination of public expenditure than would be possible under the normal procedure of the Committee Stage of a Bill. The Estimates Committees provide Members of the House of Assembly (Members of the Legislative Council do not participate) with the opportunity to examine Ministers (including those Ministers who are Members of the Legislative Council) on aspects of Government operations.

The Estimates Committees traditionally meet in the parliamentary chambers – Estimates Committee A in the House of Assembly and Estimates Committee B in the Legislative Council.
