Questions without Notice
The Greens are allocated 3 questions out of 40 in a 4 day rotation, so that means one question 3 days out of 4. In the upcoming sitting week there will be a question from the Greens at 2pm on Tuesday and 12pm on Wednesday and Thursday.
Each member of the Legislative Council is allocated one member's statement each week.
This means that one Greens member will make a member’s statement each day at approximately 3.10pm on Tuesday and 9.40am on Wednesday and Thursday.
