As noted on the download page, the Daily Hansard for any sitting day can be downloaded approximately 4 hours after the house rises. The weekly revised Hansard is available approximately three working days after the completion of the corresponding sitting week. Note that the Daily Hansard is a draft proof only and is marked as such on each page. Daily Hansard must not be quoted in any way, as it is subject to alteration. Once the revised book becomes available, Daily Hansard ceases to exist.
