Petitions
 

Queensland Parliament Petitions

Petitioning is one of the traditional forms by which you can make requests direct to Parliament.
 

A Petition is a formal request signed by at least one person and placed before the Parliament with the object of persuading the Parliament to take some particular action. For example, a petition may request the alteration of the general law or the re-consideration of an administrative decision. You can make two different types of petitions:
 

An e-petition - on-line petitions must be lodged on the the Queensland Parliament website and sponsored by either a Member of Parliament or Clerk of the Parliament. If you would like to begin an e-petition and are seeking Dale's support, please contact our office on Freecall 1800 817 594 or email burdekin@parliament.qld.gov.au
 

Paper Petition - the Paper Petitions process is essentially the same petitions process that has been operating in Queensland for over 140 years. It involves a Paper Petition being circulated in the community for signatures and then lodged by a Member.

Please use the template 'petition' document when starting a paper petition as it MUST be in this format to be tabled. If you would like Dale to table your petition in Parliament, please contact our office (details above).
