Who can use the title ‘The Honourable’?

Ministers may use the title ‘The Honourable’. This title is granted for life and therefore former ministers may also use the title.
The President and the Speaker may use the title ‘The Honourable’ while in office.
Some members choose not to use ‘The Honourable’ in their title, so you should check their entry on the website: www.parliament.vic.gov.au/members.
