Former Estimates Hearings

The estimates process aids the Parliament in its scrutiny of the Government’s proposed expenditure. Since 1994, committees of the parliament have undertaken the estimates process, by examining and reporting on the proposed expenditures contained in the Appropriation Bill and the Appropriation (Parliament) Bill.

Since 2011 the examination of the Appropriation Bill has been carried out by seven portfolio committees and from 2012 the Appropriation (Parliament) Bill has been considered by the Committee of the Legislative Assembly.

From 1994 to 2010 estimates committees were established under Sessional Orders of the Legislative Assembly to provide a better means for parliamentary scrutiny of the Government's expenditure proposals for each department.

For information on the portfolio committee budget process, including the hearing transcripts and committee reports, please view the individual committee's inquiry page, grouped below by estimates year.

For committee reports and transcripts between 1994 and 2010 please view the table below with links to these documents.
