Parliamentary (Disclosure of Interests) Amendment Bill 2017

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

In January 2017, we released a consultation draft for public comment. All submissions and comments received on the draft Bill have been reviewed and we thank those who made comment on the proposed changes.

We received the following public submissions:

The Honourable Vanessa Goodwin MP
The Honourable Rob Valentine MLC
The Honourable Kerry Finch MLC
Integrity Commission

The Bill was tabled in Parliament on 25 May 2017 and is available at: http://www.parliament.tas.gov.au/bills/Bills2017/30_of_2017.htm

The Bill has been developed in consideration of community expectations and recommendations put forward by the Integrity Commission and the Parliamentary Standards Commissioner. The proposed changes are also informed by the requirements of other Australian Parliaments.
