Documents tabled in Parliament by the ABS
 

SENATE ORDER

On the 14 November 1994, the Senate agreed to a motion requiring all Australian Government departments and agencies to produce an indexed list of files every six months for tabling before parliament. The production of the list is intended to make the operations of government more transparent to the Australian public.

As part of the Governments ongoing commitment to give Australians greater access to relevant government information quickly and easily, the original Senate Order was amended in 1998 and now requires departments to also list these files on their Internet websites.

The lists are tabled twice a year, once in the Autumn sittings and once in the Spring sittings.
