- PARLIAMENTARY SEMINARS
Under this scheme, Parliamentary Seminars are organised by the Trust for representatives and employees of the Trust’s Corporate membership and hosted by the Speaker as President of the Trust.
In 2019 we are offering 2 seminars entitled How Government is exercised though Parliament and 2 seminars on the Machinery of Government and Parliament. These seminars are held in Parliament’s Legislative Council Chamber. The Secretariat notifies all Corporate members of the dates and times at the end of January and when registration opens.
The Trust’s Parliamentary seminars are unique intensive one-day studies of the parliamentary system, aiming to illustrate how government is exercised through Parliament and to provide participants with an insight into the practical workings of the House, the effectiveness and limitations of committees, the process of legislation, and the programming of parliamentary business, etc.
Participants hear from MPs and those associated with the day-to-day running of Parliament just how the system works with a view to promoting understanding within the business community of the work of Parliament and its members.
