Following the recent elections, there will be some delay before this section is updated. The Parliament must wait to receive formal notice before publishing Members' details.

  • Members profiles are updated - after the Parliament receives notice that the writ announcing the winning candidate has been returned to the Governor. Contact telephone numbers and electorate office addresses for members in new electorates are listed on this site only after the members concerned provide their details to the Parliament.
