  • Queensland’s Parliament will sit from Tuesday 10 to Thursday 12 May and again from the 24th to the 26th, before the State Budget on 14 June
    • It’s a safe bet that the Federal Budget’s treatment of Queensland, and the ascension of Tim Nicholls to lead the Opposition will dominate much of the week
  • The Queensland Parliament’s summary of what’s new, including newly-introduced and passed legislation, is here www.parliament.qld.gov.au/work-of-assembly/whats-new
  • The Federal Parliament has been prorogued until after the Federal Election on 2 July – see www.aph.gov.au
