Disallowance Alert 2016

2016 | 2015 | 20142013 | 2012 | 2011 | 2010 | 2009 | 2008 | 2007 | 2006 | 2005 | 2004 | 2003 | 2002 | 2001 | 2000

The time for giving notices of motion to disallow legislative instruments continues to run from one Parliament into the next. So, for example, for an instrument tabled on the last day of sitting before the dissolution there will still be 15 sitting days in the next Parliament to give notice of a motion to disallow it. Instruments which are the subject of unresolved disallowance motions at the dissolution are deemed to be tabled on the first sitting day of the new Parliament, so that the time for giving notice of motion to disallow them begins afresh.

The Disallowance Alert lists all instruments subject to a notice of motion for disallowance (whether at the instigation of the committee or an individual senator or member). The progress and eventual outcome of any such notice is also recorded.

For more information regarding the disallowance process, please see the Brief Guide to Senate Procedure No.19 - Disallowance and House of Representatives Guide to Procedure, Chapter 14 - Delegated legislation - Disallowance and approval.
