Hansard is not a verbatim transcript of what occurs in the chambers but a faithful record of debate. It is generally corrected for redundancies, errors of fact, grammar, false starts and slips of the tongue, and it can incorporate submitted materials that are not read aloud.

Hansard is also the name of the division that publishes Hansard. Upon request, Hansard provides transcripts of hearings to parliamentary committees, who determine their publication.

Transcripts of Committees are treated as evidence and can be found via Search Parliament or under the specific Committee Details.
