Parliamentary Sitting Days – 2001

The South Australian Parliament is to sit for 59 days during the rest of 2002, according to a report in today’s edition of the Adelaide Advertiser. The Parliament will also sit for 19 days during January-April 2003.

The schedule of sitting days is the result of an agreement between the minority Labor government and the independent member for Hammond, Peter Lewis. Additionally, in return for his support on the floor of the Parliament, Lewis was made Speaker of the House of Assembly.

According to the report, the various Parliaments sat for a total of 456 days during 2001:
