A Little Night Sitting - Hansard: A History

  • Find out about the sometimes dangerous history of parliamentary reporting in the Westminster system;

  • Hear from the NSW Parliament's Editor of Debates about how Hansard works in the State Parliament;

  • Visit the historic Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council Chambers and view the Hansard reporters at work.
