The full text of questions is published two times only, once when a question is first published and then again when an answer to a question has been received.
The Questions and Answers Paper is published at the end of each sitting day. From time to time the Paper is also published during adjournments of the House of two or more weeks containing answers that have been received.
You can also find individual questions and answers using the Legislative Assembly's Questions and Answers tracking function. This is a useful search tool which enables you to filter by Member, portfolio or subject.
