2020 General Election

The Queensland Parliament has been dissolved by proclamation dated 6 October 2020. The Queensland election will be held on 31 October 2020.

Upon the dissolution, all committees of the Parliament (other than the Parliamentary Crime and Corruption Committee) ceased.

All inquiries by these ceased committees lapsed upon the dissolution. All Bills that have been introduced in the Legislative Assembly but are not yet passed automatically lapse upon the dissolution. Bills may or may not be reintroduced in the next Parliament.

At some time after the State election, a new Parliament will commence and new committees will be appointed. The date of commencement is not yet known.

For some inquiries, the new committee will have the power to decide whether to continue an inquiry commenced before the dissolution.

For Bill inquiries, it will be a matter for the new Parliament whether to make a fresh referral to a committee of any re-introduced Bill.

If a new committee continues an inquiry commenced before the dissolution, it can have regard to evidence and submissions received by its predecessor committee.

Updated advice will be provided when more information is available.
