Commissioner Annabelle Bennett invites people to make a submission about the 2019-20 bushfire season. Submissions to the Royal Commission into National Natural Disaster Arrangements close on Tuesday, 28 April 2020.

Hello my name is Annabelle Bennett.

I'm one of the commissioners appointed to the Royal Commission international natural disaster arrangements.

Before COVID-19 restrictions came into effect, I met many people who were affected by the recent bush fires in communities across Australia.

We learned a great deal during those visits, but there is still more to learn.

If you've been thinking about making a submission, now is the time to act, before submissions close on Tuesday the 28th of April.

We know that many people are still living in temporary accommodation with limited or no internet access.

That's why from the very beginning, we have taken submissions over the phone, by mail, or via the Commission's website.

I encourage you to have your say and make a submission.

Thank you.
