5       Speaker’s Statement – Daily Hansard on the Internet and Intranet

The Speaker made the following statement:

As Honourable Members know, the Weekly Hansard is now available on the Internet on the Tuesday following a sitting week.

It has now been decided that, as from the start of the Spring session, a corrected Daily Hansard will be put on the Internet at about 4.00 pm on the day following a sitting, thus considerably improving this service to Members and the public by making Hansard available some days sooner than is presently the case.

To enable the necessary work to be done in time for this to happen, it will be necessary for Honourable Members to return any corrections to the Leader of Hansard by 1.00 pm on the day following a sitting, rather than 4.00 pm as applies now.

For the remainder of this session, I ask Members to observe the 1.00 pm deadline so that the new system can be operating smoothly on 28 September.

It is also intended, from the beginning of next session, to extend throughout Parliament House on the Intranet, the present on-line service now available in the Hansard Office and the Parliamentary Library that provides electronically, both uncorrected Daily and Weekly Hansard.  In this form, the uncorrected Daily Hansard will be available within a couple of hours of Parliament’s adjourning of an evening. For reasons of confidentiality, this service should remain in-house.

I take this opportunity to remind Honourable Members that any corrections to Hansard should relate only to inaccuracies; they must not alter the meaning of anything said or introduce new matter.
