Parliamentary Papers Series (PPS)
"Many documents are presented to Parliament each year: some are required to be presented by law, others may just be presented for the general information of Members. Documents presented include the annual reports of all government agencies, reports of royal commissions and other government inquiries, parliamentary committee reports, and a wide variety of other material. Of all the documents presented to Parliament each year, only documents of a substantial nature are included in the Parliamentary Papers series (PPS)." (Parliament of Australia. Parliamentary Papers Series)
The series may include reports from royal commissions, committees of inquiry and standing committees, green papers (discussion papers) and white papers (policy papers) ministerial policy statements, documents associated with the budget and annual reports from Government departments and agencies.
All papers tabled are given a parliamentary paper number.
