The Parliamentary Budget Office (PBO) has recently issued a consultation paper on allowing minor parties to opt in to the PBO’s post-election report of election commitments.

The consultation paper provides information on the process for preparing the post-election report, including the requirements placed on the PBO and designated Parliamentary parties by the Parliamentary Service Act 1999, and the factors we will need to consider in allowing non-designated Parliamentary parties to opt in to the report.  It seeks feedback from parliamentarians and their staff, as well as interested stakeholders, on these matters.

Submissions are requested by 13 April 2018.  Submissions can be emailed to [email protected] and will be made public unless otherwise requested. Enquiries can be directed to Tim Pyne on (02) 6277 9560.
