The Relationship between the parliament and the executive full-day seminar looks at the processes and procedures the Parliament uses to scrutinise the actions of the Executive Government. We'll look at the:

  • separation of powers doctrine and how it's applied to Queensland's unicameral parliament
  • reforms to the Parliamentary Committee system
  • Budget and Estimates process
  • Legislative scrutiny process
  • role of a Minister at the parliamentary and Executive levels.

During the seminar, participants will tour Parliament and learn its history. They'll get to observe Parliament at work during Question Time and participate in a session with a Minister about their parliamentary and Executive roles and responsibilities.
