Did you have problems lodging your submission via the internet?

SavePapakura.com is aware that for the Third Bill submissions, many people had difficulties submitting their submission using the internet.
Some people were able to overcome the issues; though we suspect that some other people may not have been successful in lodging their submission.

In recent months Parliament has used an online submission form via a webpage. 'Popups' being blocked was not obvious for some users, across varying skill levels and complexities.

The Select Committee Office has shutdown the previous committee e-mail address for correspondence and submissions; with all e-mails bouncing.
This caused problems for people who were doing what they did on the Second Bill last year and tried to e-mail their submissions.

How do I make my submission? (Submissions have now closed)
