The Federal Government’s inquiry into the impact of fly-in fly-out work on communities, families, and employees will be visiting Western Australia this week.

Public hearings will be held in the state’s mining regions, including Karratha, Port Hedland, Broome, Perth, and Kalgoorlie.

Those that have made written submissions will be presenting evidence to Government officials, and community members will also have the chance to observe and make short statements.

According to ABC news Federal MP and committee member Barry Hasse said all community members were invited to attend the hearings.

"They may not have made a submission but if they attend the public hearings there’ll be a public contribution session in each of the locations," he said.

Last month the inquiry visited mining regions in Queensland, including Moranbah, Mackay, Brisbane, and Cairns.

The committee will visit regional New South Wales and Sydney in May and then Victoria in June.
