Parliamentary Research Service

Members of Parliament are increasingly expected to understand and comment upon complex issues. The Parliamentary Research Service (PRS) is available to all members of Parliament to assist in their comprehension of these issues.
Many vested interests and lobby groups attempt to influence parliamentarians. In addition there is a flood of unsolicited printed material designed to sway parliamentary decision-making. The PRS aims to supply an independent viewpoint to its clients.

Services Available

The PRS supplies independent information and research to its client group through a number of products.
The major role and product of the PRS will be confidential papers and oral briefings undertaken on an individual or group basis for clients.This consists of the provision of research papers across a wide range of subjects, such as law, politics, land tenure, ethnic tension, logging, the economy and tourism. Subject areas depend on the requests of Members of Parliament. Publications produced by the Research Service are entirely to assist Members of Parliament to be informative legislatures. These include:

  • Fact Sheets

  • Research/Background Papers

  • Briefing Papers
