Prorogation of Parliament and Dissolution of the Legislative Assembly

On 30 January 2017, Her Excellency the Governor prorogued the two Houses of the Parliament of Western Australia and dissolved the Legislative Assembly. Prorogation ends a session of Parliament and the dissolution of the Legislative Assembly terminates the 39th Parliament. Dissolution of the Assembly also terminates all Assembly committees and all joint committees of the Parliament. Any Legislative Council committee without a capacity to meet to transact business after prorogation cannot meet to conduct any formal business, including the taking of evidence. The General Election will be held on Saturday, 11 March 2017 and the 40th Parliament will first meet on a subsequent date appointed by the Governor.
