Archived Committee Broadcasts

Please note: Only the most recent broadcast for each committee is available for viewing or listening. For previous committee proceedings a transcript of the proceedings may be available on the relevant committee’s inquiry page, under the 'Related Documents' tab.

You may have noticed that the broadcast of the Legislative Assembly is now available through the Parliament TV website on all types of devices. We are working on upgrading the live Committee broadcast in the same way, however, while we are working on this, Committee broadcasts will continue to be presented through the existing systems. Accordingly, please note you will still require Windows Media Player to view the broadcast of the committees until mid-2017.

This broadcast is protected by the powers, immunities and rights of the Legislative Assembly, but further publication of the broadcast (in whole or in part) is not similarly protected.

The broadcast of proceedings is not the official record of the proceedings of the Legislative Assembly or its committees and cannot be used to contradict, add to or impugn the accuracy of the official reports of debates (Hansard). (Section 57 of the Parliament of Queensland Act 2001 provides that the reports of the debates (Hansard) are the accurate record of what happened in the Legislative Assembly). Therefore, the broadcast material should not be quoted or used in any proceedings such as legal proceedings.

Further Publication

Under sections 50 and 58 of the Parliament of Queensland Act 2001, the Legislative Assembly and its committees has authorised further publication of the broadcast subject to the conditions set out below under the heading “Conditions of Access.” The further publication of the broadcast in contravention of any of the conditions set out under the heading “Conditions of Access” is a contempt of Parliament under section 58 of the Parliament of Queensland Act 2001.

  1. The material must only be used for the purposes of fair and accurate reports of proceedings and must not in any circumstances be used for;

  5. Points of order, and matters claimed to be points of order may be rebroadcast except:
    1. statements in respect of which a member claims misrepresentation or otherwise seeks withdrawal, and which are subsequently ordered to be withdrawn, or are voluntarily withdrawn, are not to be rebroadcast; or
    2. if the House or the Speaker or Committee Chairperson, in accordance with the Standing Rules and Orders and practice of the Legislative Assembly, orders that a statement be expunged or deleted from Hansard, either at the time that the statement was made or at a later time, the statement, the Speaker’s or Chairperson's direction and the proceedings relating to the matter, are not to be rebroadcast.
