Sitting day Routine of Business

The Routine of Business in the Legislative Assembly is conducted according to Sessional Order 97, which was last amended on 1 August 2019. The Sessional Order sets out a timetable for the order of business to be considered by the House over three consecutive week days. Government Business is conducted on every sitting day, and General Business is considered on sitting Thursdays.
