Scrutiny of Legislation Conference


“Parliamentary Scrutiny – Looking to the Future”

In light of the present circumstances the Scrutiny Conference has been postponed. Further advice will be provided in due course.


To be advised.


Parliament House, Melbourne, Victoria

Conference overview

Delegates from the Federal, State, Territory and New Zealand parliamentary committees are invited to Parliament House in Melbourne, Victoria, to discuss the past, present and future of parliamentary scrutiny. Representatives from overseas parliamentary committees are most welcome.

The Scrutiny of Legislation Conference strengthens the commitment to parliamentary scrutiny across various jurisdictions. It supports the checks and balances processes which are of fundamental importance to the law making process.

At the seminar to mark the tenth anniversary of the Senate Standing Committee for the Scrutiny of Bills, Senator Barney Cooney stated:

“Since its inception, the Committee has operated on the basis that it keeps party politics at bay … Often what is involved is the balance to be struck between the public interest in preserving individual rights against the public interest in meeting community needs … The Parliament is the institution best placed to balance these interests. It is the Committee’s role to highlight these issues…”

Index to Argus reports on First Legislative Council proceedings

An index to the Argus newspaper was produced, covering the period of the First Legislative Council's existence, from 1851-56. This has been digitised and provided as an aide to locating specific issues dealt with by the Council.

The index was produced in two separate parts, 1846-54 and 1855-59. As the digitised files were very large, they have been broken up into sections of around 10MB.

Note that the index covered the entire contents of the Argus, so there will be much material extraneous to the First Legislative Council.
