As part of the Tasmanian Liberal Government’s commitment to the highest standards of public disclosure, transparency and accountability, we are developing a Bill to amend the Parliamentary (Disclosure of Interests) Act 1996.

The draft Bill also makes a series of minor amendments to improve the operation and understanding of the Act.
