Constituency questions introduced

Constituency questions

Roads, infrastructure, education and jobs growth were some of the key issues Victorian MPs raised in the first constituency questions to ministers.

The Victorian Parliament's new sessional orders provide for constituency questions to be asked at the end of question time in both the Legislative Assembly and Legislative Council.

The first constituency questions were asked on 24 February 2015, the day the new sessional orders first took effect in both houses.

Ministers are required to respond to constituency questions in writing within 30 days.

The sessional orders are the parliamentary rules that will apply for the life of the 58th Parliament.

They can be accessed online from the Legislative Assembly sessional orders webpage and the Legislative Council sessional orders webpage.

The constituency questions that are asked can be read in each sitting day’s Hansard.
