Legislation Review Committee

The Legislation Review Committee reviews each Bill introduced into Parliament and reports on its impact on personal rights and liberties.


The Committee must, under section 8A of the Legislation Review Act 1987, report to Parliament Bills that:


  • trespass on personal rights and liberties
  • do not properly define administrative powers that may affect personal rights
  • do not allow for the review of decisions that may affect personal rights
  • inappropriately delegate legislative power
  • do not sufficiently allow the Parliament to scrutinise legislative power.


The Committee also reviews and reports on any regulation that impacts on personal rights and liberties, or adversely affects the business community.
