Hansard: A History

Free public event celebrating 140 years of Hansard reporting in NSW.

Today we take the transparency of parliamentary activity for granted. Did you know it was once banned to publish what was said in Parliament?

This month we celebrate 140 years of Hansard reporting in NSW. Since October 1879, every speech, petition, motion and debate has been recorded by Hansard and made available to the public.

Join us at this free evening event to learn about the rich history of this democratic institution and the life of a Hansard reporter.



6 Macquarie St, Sydney NSW 2000, Australia


Tuesday 22 October 2019 from 5pm to 7pm
