Parliament House is one of Queenslands main heritage buildings and
has been the location of the Queensland Parliament since the buildings
completion in August 1868. From 1860 to 1868, Parliament met in the
Old Convict Barracks in Queen Street which were situated across from the
present-day Myer Centre. This photograph depicts the Porte-Cochere of the
main George Street entrance. This was only added in 1982, despite having
appeared on the original plans for the building.

* The Queensland Parliamentary Record was previously known as the


Queensland Parliamentary Handbook (First to Ninth editions).

Regional Parliament
The Far North Queensland sitting of Parliament in Cairns (28-30 October 2008) was the third time in its history that the Parliament met outside of Brisbane. The
sitting was an opportunity for Far North Queensland students and the general public to experience democracy in action. Over 5,200 people attended over the three
days of sittings, including almost 2,000 school students. The Wednesday evening Question time session was attended by 755 people and was also interpreted into
Auslan sign-language for members of the Far North Queensland deaf community who were in attendance.

National Week of Deaf People


The Queensland Parliament participated in the National Week of Deaf People on 17 October 2007, by
having Question Time interpreted into Auslan sign language for visiting members of the deaf community.
The event was jointly organised by Deaf Services Queensland (DSQ), the Parliaments Community
Engagement Unit and MPs David Gibson and Carolyn Male.

Wind Yarn
In May 2007, John Pene-Formosa was
commissioned as the Parliaments first artistin-residence to produce an official didgeridoo
for the parliament. The Wind Yarn is a
didgeridoo that symbolises reconciliation in
Queensland. The Wind Yarn was unveiled on
15 November 2007 and is displayed alongside
the Parliaments Mace and is used on special
ceremonial occasions.

Indigenous Liaison Officer Appointment


Speaker Mike Reynolds congratulates Mr Brett Nutley on his appointment as the Queensland Parliaments
Indigenous Liaison Officer in January 2008. The Queensland Parliament was the first Australian parliament
to appoint an Indigenous Liaison Officer.

Abergowrie Youth Parliament


The Abergowrie Youth Parliament was held on 22 April 2008 at Abergowrie College in North Queensland.
This event saw 90 secondary students from Abergowrie College, Ingham State High School and Gilroy
Santa Maria College debate a range of youth issues. The Abergowrie Youth Parliament was jointly
presided over by local Members of Parliament, Mike Reynolds, Member for Townsville and Andrew
Cripps, Member for Hinchinbrook.
ix

Flag Raising Ceremony


Speaker Mike Reynolds was joined by
members of the Brisbane Council of
Elders and representative of Torres Strait
Islanders, Mr Thomas Sebasio, to watch as
the Aboriginal and Torres Straight Islander
flags were hoisted for the first time in front
of Parliament House on 22 May 2007.
Under Speaker Reynolds two important
initiatives in the recognition of Indigenous
peoples in the Queensland Parliament
were implemented. The first was that the
Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander flags
were permanently flown along with the
Australian and Queensland flags in front
of Parliament House and also located
within the Legislative Assembly Chamber.
Secondly, the traditional owners of the land
on which the Queensland Parliament stands
are now acknowledged at the start of each
sitting day.

Online Broadcast
The online broadcast of proceedings of the Queensland Parliament commenced in June 2007. Staff from
the Parliamentary Reporting Service remotely operate cameras located in the Parliamentary Chamber
and broadcast the footage live over the Parliaments internet site.

PREFACE

The Queensland Parliamentary Record for the 52nd Parliament (10 October 2006 23 February
2009) continues to be a rich, concise and comprehensive information source for all users about
the parliamentary careers of present and past Members of the Queensland Parliament and records
of the Parliament itself since 1860.
Although the Parliamentary Record constitutes a record of the life of the 52nd Parliament, all
of the historical tables and records are now available on the Queensland Parliaments website
at www.parliament.qld.gov.au, as is current information about the Members and the Parliament.
This information is compiled by staff within the Community Engagement Unit of the Parliament.
It is now a key feature of the Parliamentary Record to celebrate significant events in the course
of a Parliament by the inclusion of a photo collage of important milestones and events, such as
the regional sitting of Parliament held in Cairns 28-30 October 2008.
Under Speaker Reynolds, two initiatives were implemented in relation to Parliaments recognition
of Indigenous peoples of Queensland. Firstly on the 22nd May 2007, the Aboriginal and Torres
Strait Islander flags were permanently flown along with the Australian and Queensland flags in front
of Parliament House and also located within the Legislative Assembly Chamber. Secondly, the
traditional owners of the land on which the Queensland Parliament stands are now acknowledged
at the start of each sitting day.
In addition, in this edition, information about Shadow Ministries has been enhanced.
Updating of the material for the Record of the 52nd parliament has been a combined effort of
staff of the Parliamentary Library and Community Engagement Unit. Particular thanks are owed
to Kalimna Hawkins and Tim Moroney of Community Engagement, and Melissa Cook, Roslin
Bailey and Eve Francis as well as Research and Information staff of the Parliamentary Library.
The Department of Natural Resources provided the original electorate maps used as the basis for
the end covers, with the kind permission of the Queensland Electoral Commission.
Finally, the Library would appreciate notification of any discrepancies or errors found by readers.
Please contact the Parliamentary Librarian on (07) 3406 7280.

*

Because of the creation of large Ministerial portfolios in recent years, the position of Parliamentary Secretary was also created as a
means of assistance to Ministers and as a form of training for future Ministerial office. Following in the tradition of Britains Westminster
governments, the Fraser Liberal federal government introduced the position of Parliamentary Secretary via legislation in 1980. The idea was
taken up by the state governments, with Queensland being the last one to create the position of Parliamentary Secretary. In Queenslands
case, the Borbidge/Sheldon National/Liberal government created the position for three Parliamentary Secretaries by a motion in the
Parliament, which was ratified by an Executive Council proclamation in February 1996. Later, in April 1996, the position of Parliamentary
Secretary was legislatively recognised by the Constitution (Parliamentary Secretaries) Amendment Act 1996 which provided formal
status in the Constitution Act 1867 (now covered by the updated Constitution Act 2001, Sections 24 26), and four other relevant Acts.

Queensland Parliamentary Record

OPPOSITION LEADERS
From 1898
On 30 August 1898 the Australian Labor Party (ALP) accepted the official position of Parliamentary
Opposition in the Queensland Parliament. Prior to 1898, loose coalitions of interests were opposed to
the Governments of the day. Because of their changeable voting patterns, it is difficult to categorise
them as a definitive Parliamentary Opposition. It will be noted that the ALP has had a continuous history
as a party, whether in Government or Opposition. However, the nonLabor parties demonstrate a history
of changing titles or changing alignments. Where the nonLabor Opposition leader has remained the
same, but the party or alignment has altered, the pertinent dates of service are given.

* Not to be confused with the Country and Progressive National Party, which ceased to exist on 6
April 1936. This particular Country-National Party was formed in April 1941, when parliamentary
members of the Country Party, without the consent of the Country Party organisation, joined with
members of the National Party to create a working coalition in the Parliament. However, on 8 April
1941, a Country Party conference voted to continue as a separate organisation and repudiated the
previous fusion.

Note: The Legislative Council was abolished on 23 March 1922, the date on which the abolition bill
- The Constitution Act Amendment Act of 1922 - was proclaimed, thus giving Queensland the only
unicameral parliament in Australia, and one of the few in the Commonwealth. Abolition had been
a platform of successive Labor governments since 1915, but was achieved only by appointment of
sufficient additional MLCs to ensure passage of the bill. An attempt had been made in May 1917 to
force abolition by passage of a referendum, however the move was not successful, the votes being
116,196 for, and 179,105 against.

Until 24 February 2005, the Queensland Ombudsman had a dual role, also performing the
role of Information Commissioner. On 24 February 2005, the roles were separated with an
independent Office of the Information Commissioner being established with a stand-alone
Information Commissioner. Like the Ombudsman, the Information Commissioner is an officer
reporting directly to the Parliament.

* The position of Parliamentary Crime and Misconduct Commissioner was originally established
in 1988 as the Parliamentary Criminal Justice Commissioner. With the commencement of the
Crime and Misconduct Act 2001(Qld), the title of the position was changed and the legislation
made clear that the Parliamentary Commissioner is an agent of the Parliamentary Crime and
Misconduct Committee.

The 52nd Parliament

First used as an electorate name in the Electoral Districts Act of 1872 which changed the old Ipswich seat from a three member constituency to a single member electorate. The electorate was known as Bundamba until the name was dropped in the 1910 redistribution in favour of Bremer. The name was revived in the 1991 redistribution, with the new electorate
replacing the former electorate of Wolston as well as incorporating part of the electorate of Ipswich.

of the electorate was changed to Mount Isa.

One of the sixteen original electorates proclaimed under the Order-in-Council of 6 June 1859 returning two members. By the 1872 Electoral Districts Act it was reduced to a single

The 1991 redistribution extended this electorate north to include part of the former electorate of Callide and east to include part
of the abolished electorate of Isis.

Cunningham
Established under the Electoral Districts Act of 1887 which split up the old seat of Darling Downs into Cunningham and Cambooya. The name was retained for the same area for many
years and was substituted for Drayton in the 1922 redistribution when the name ceased to exist. The original seat stretched from Cunninghams Gap, west to Clifton and south to the
NSW border excluding the town of Warwick. In the 1991 redistribution the electorate assumed much of its original shape, once more stretching south to the NSW border and including
the town of Goondiwindi. Some of the northern part was lost to the new electorates of Crows Nest and Western Downs.

Western Downs
Southern Downs
Resulting from the 1872 Electoral Districts Act which split up the original (1859) electorates of Eastern Downs and Western Downs. Darling Downs existed as a single member constituency (1874-78) and a dual member constituency (1878-1888) until it in turn was redistributed out of existence in 1887, becoming the basis of Cambooya and Cunningham. In the
1999 redistribution it was re-established.

The 52nd Parliament

Originally constituted under the Electoral Districts Act of 1872, centred on the town of Dalby and surrounds, it was augmented in the 1935 redistribution by the inclusion of most of the
electorate of Murilla. Following abolition in 1949 much of Dalby was included in the new seat of Condamine.

One of the original sixteen electorates established under the Order-in-Council of 6th June 1859, the seat returned three members at each election from 1860-1873, when as a result of
the 1872 redistribution, Ipswich, as it now was known, became a single member constituency. In the 1878 redistribution Ipswich became a dual member constituency until 1912, when
it reverted once again to a single member seat, with the re-introduction of the seat of Bremer.

Initiated by the 1949 redistribution which created the electorate from the northern portion of the former Murrumba electorate and the eastern part of the former seat of Stanley, which was
abolished. Population growth resulted in very substantial erosion of the original area covered. Abolished in the 1991 redistribution and subsumed into the new electorates of Caloundra
and Mooloolah and the existing electorate of Nicklin.

Lockyer
Created in the 1887 redistribution, the seat originally took in the area east of the Range at Toowoomba, including Gatton, Helidon and Laidley which had originally been in the Stanley
electorate. Lockyer was abolished in the 1931 redistribution, being split up between West Moreton and East Toowoomba, but was re-established in the 1949 redistribution. The Yarraman area was added in 1977, and the 1986 redistribution resulted in small parts being transferred to Toowoomba North. In the 1991 redistribution the northern half of the electorate
was lost to the new seat of Crows Nest while the southern part extended south to the NSW border taking over part of the abolished seats of Somerset and Fassifern.

Established under the 1872 Electoral Districts Act which cut off the southern or Gold Coast part of the electorate of East Moreton to form the seat, it survived boundary alterations in
successive redistributions which saw the seat forced closer to the Brisbane area. It was abolished in the 1949 redistribution, with a substantial portion going into Coorparoo, and revived
in 1959 for an outer Brisbane rural seat based on Redlands Shire, but dropped again in the 1971 redistribution. In 1986 the name was once again used for an electorate based on the
north-eastern part of the Fassifern electorate and the north-western portion of Albert. In 1991 the eastern half of the electorate was lost, leaving it based on the suburbs of Marsden,
Browns Plains, Boronia Heights and Park Ridge.

Toowong
Created in the 1887 redistribution, this seat took in the modern suburbs of Paddington, Rainworth, Milton, Rosalie, Toowong and the Mount Coot-tha reserve. The excision of new
seats of Paddington and Ithaca in 1911 resulted in an even larger electorate to make up for the loss of the most populated areas, and it now took in all of Moggill as far as the Bremer.
In 1923 all of this Western part became Enoggera and Toowong contracted back to the Auchenflower, Toowong, St. Lucia area. In 1935 the former huge area was restored, and in 1949
with the creation of Mount Coot-tha, Toowong returned to its current area. Abolished in the 1991 redistribution and its area absorbed by the new electorate of Indooroopilly and the
existing electorate of Mount Coot-tha.

Originally included in the seat of Drayton and Toowoomba, the city was for a brief period an electorate of its own right (1873-78) before being once again coupled with Drayton (18791911) this time however as a dual member constituency. From 1911 Toowoomba returned one member, however other electorates (Drayton, East Toowoomba to 1949, Lockyer and
North Toowoomba 1949-59) covered parts of the city. In the 1959 redistribution Toowoomba was divided into east and west, and in 1971 re-apportioned into north and south, with
some going into Lockyer.

Townsville
Constituted by the Electoral Districts Act of 1878, which provided one member for the seat based on the city of Townsville. The city was divided into two electorates - Townsville
and Musgrave by virtue of the Additional Members Act of 1885. From 1886-1912 the seat returned two members, when single electorates were made universal, and the electorates of
Townsville and Mundingburra established. In 1923 the northern part of the city was included in Kennedy and the southern part in Mundingburra. The 1959 redistribution abolished
Townsville as a seat, dividing the city into Townsville North and Townsville South, but it was restored in the 1971 redistribution without however including the major suburban areas
which were located in Townsville South and Townsville West. It now included also a large area of rural Townsville formerly in Hinchinbrook. The 1986 redistribution reduced the
area of the seat to the city environs. In the 1991 redistribution the electorate gained a small area from the previous Townsville East and lost its south-west corner to the new seat of
Mundingburra.

One of the original electorates proclaimed in 1859, it took in all the Brisbane River catchment area as well as the territory South of Laidley and Ipswich to the border. It was a three
member constituency until the 1873 election, by which time the provisions of the 1872 redistribution had broken up the electorate into Stanley, West Moreton and Fassifern. Under the
1878 Electoral Districts Act the portion of West Moreton West of Ipswich was re-named Rosewood and the rest was added to Stanley. In the 1931 redistribution the name Rosewood
was changed back to West Moreton. In the 1949 redistribution the area was split up between Lockyer, Somerset and Fassifern.

Whitsunday
First established in the 1949 redistribution when it was formed from portions of the former Bowen and Mirani electorates, the seat took in the coastal strip from South of Bowen to
North of Mackay, and inland as far as Collinsville. In the 1959 redistribution the boundaries were moved south and east, excluding Collinsville, and in 1971 the northern boundary was
extended almost as far as Home Hill. The 1986 redistribution resulted in the seat being confirmed to the Coastal area it originally occupied. In the 1991 redistribution the seat moved
north and west into areas formerly occupied by the abolished electorate of Bowen including the towns of Bowen and Collinsville.
