Introductory Speech

about the bill

On 26 August 2014, the Minister for Tourism, Major Events, Small Business and the Commonwealth Games, Hon Jann Stuckey MP, introduced the Major Events Bill 2014 (the Bill).

In accordance with Standing Order 131, the Bill was referred to the State Development, Infrastructure and Industry Committee for consideration and report to the House by 20 October 2014.

The objective of the Bill is to provide a generic legislative framework that can be used to conduct major events across Queensland, such as the Gold Coast 2018 Commonwealth Games, the 2015 Asian Cup and the V8 Supercars motor racing events.

It is intended that the Bill will replace a range of current Queensland legislation relating to major events and alleviate the need for event-specific legislation to be drafted for future major events held in Queensland.
