How to find explanatory notes

For Bills

You can find a link to a Bill’s explanatory notes on the Bills pages.

En column for Bills

The link takes you to the creation history of the Bill (shown below) where explanatory notes, any erratum, the Bill, 3rd reading version and Act can be easily located, if available.


For SL (and Bills)

  • After finding the status information page for the Bill or SL, click the Legislative History button.
  • Scroll to the bottom of the page where the name of the Bill or SL appears as a heading.
  • Here you will find details and links to the related explanatory notes (and errata and RIS if appropriate).


Further information about finding the explanatory notes for a Bill or for subordinate legislation and how-to videos are available in our publication 'About Queensland legislation and this website' on the Information page.
