Adjournment Matters

Adjournment Matters

Council Standing Order 4.13 requires that a response to an adjournment matter, from a Minister, must be given at the time the matter is raised in the House or provided in writing within 30 days.

Responses provided in writing must be lodged with the Clerk. Before the Daily Adjournment Debate concludes, a Minister advises the Council of any responses provided. A copy of each response is given to the Member who raised the matter and incorporated into Hansard

There is no further action to be taken after a response has been provided.
