Proposal to modernise the publication of WA legislation

Hugh McGinlay (Director, Legislation Services, Parliamentary Counsel’s Office WA) has shared with ALLA(WA) a proposal to modernise the publication of WA legislation. Please note that these are proposals only and that the Government has not yet approved them.

The proposal to modernise the processes for publishing WA legislation involves 3 components:

  • replacing the current requirement to publish subsidiary legislation in full in the Gazette with publication on the WA legislation website (;
  • giving WA legislation compilations prepared by the PCO in electronic form the same status that statutory reprints in printed form now have;
  • extending the powers available under the Reprints Act 1984 to the preparation in the PCO of all electronic versions of WA legislation.
Please see this PDF for more detailed information about the proposal.
