Some selected Memoranda after 1982 (and not available on the Internet elsewhere) are published below. The AustLII website may also contain copies of Explanatory Memoranda that do not appear in the list below.
Over 1500 Explanatory Memoranda (mainly for Bills introduced in the Senate and Supplementary Explanatory Memoranda for Bills introduced and amended in the House of Representatives) are also available in the Senate Tabled Papers database. As the database can be difficult to use, the searching tips should be read first.
Each Explanatory Memorandum is listed alphabetically, within each year.
