Disallowance Alert 2022

Download PDF

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.

Section 42 of the Legislation Act 2003 provides the framework for the standard disallowance process, which is supported by standing orders. For more information regarding the disallowance process, see Odgers' Australian Senate Practice, 14th Edition (2016), the Guide to Senate Procedure No.19 - Disallowance and House of Representatives Guide to Procedure, Chapter 14 - Delegated legislation - Disallowance and approval.

Notices are recorded chronologically in order of the date they were given, starting with the most recent at the top of the table.
