The First Legislative Council archive contains documents from 1824 to 1855. It includes tabled papers, SMH newspaper reports of debates, and documents relating to the administration of the First Council (classified as "non-tabled papers"). These have been indexed by document type and date. Please note, over time some of the early original material has become faded and in some places illegible; nonetheless it is included here in its authentic form as a record of its existence. Also, while every effort has been made to ensure accuracy, the archive is a work in progress and some classification errors may exist. Please report any corrections to the Parliamentary Library via the contact us online form.
