Current e-Petitions for the Legislative Council

e-Petitions Conditions of Use

The petitions process is governed by the Temporary Orders adopted by the Legislative Council of Western Australia. These Temporary Orders enable the Parliament of Western Australia to accept electronic petitioning (“e-Petitions”).

By electing to join an e-Petition, you acknowledge that you meet the conditions detailed below.

  1. You meet the eligibility requirement specified for the e-Petition. This means that you fall into one of the three broad groups of petitioners:
    1. West Australian residents;
    2. West Australian citizens; or
    3. West Australian electors in a nominated electorate.
      The eligibility requirement for each e-Petition is identified on the web site.
  2. You have not already joined the e-Petition.
  • The name, address and email address details provided are your true details.
    Otherwise, you are entering the name, address and email address details of someone else because they are physically incapable of entering their details and:
  • have given you express permission to act on their behalf to record their details for the purposes of joining the e-Petition (provided that the authority to act on their behalf is not revoked at the time of joining the e-Petition); and
  • to the best of your knowledge the details that you enter are true and correct.
  • By electing to join an e-Petition, you acknowledge that your name, address and email address will be published on the physical tabled paper of the e-Petition retained by the Legislative Council. This personal information will not be viewable in any form on the web site, however, the hard copy of the tabled paper of the e-Petition containing this information may be obtained from the Clerk of the Legislative Council.

    Your name, address and email address details will not be added to a mailing list by the Legislative Council. All electronic personal data relating to the posting and joining of an e-petition will be disposed of within six months of the e-petition being printed and presented to the Legislative Council. Further information on the collection and storage of personal information is available in our Privacy Statement

    IMPORTANT: Failing to comply with these Conditions of Use may amount to a contempt of Parliament. Actions that are considered to be in contempt of Parliament include:

    • presenting a forged or falsified document to the House or a committee;
    • submitting a petition containing false, scandalous or groundless allegations; or
    • inducing a person to sign a petition by fraud and misleading the House.

    You could be fined for committing a contempt of Parliament, or even imprisoned if you fail to pay such a fine.

    Sign Upholding recommendation 5 of the AFAC Independent Operational Review of the Wooroloo Bushfire 2021

    To the President and Members of the Legislative Council:

    support upholding the Wooroloo Bushfire Inquiry Recommendation 5, which states ‘Any determination that the Fire and Emergency Services Commissioner, as the Hazard Management Authority (Bushfire), makes in respect of construction standards or subdivision developments, regarding requirements such as Asset Protection Zones, Bushfire Attack Levels etc. should be upheld by the consent authority.’
    We therefore ask the Legislative Council to recommend that the Government investigate and implement Legislative changes to enable recommendations made by DFES via its Commissioner, regarding the safer planning and/or development in bushfire prone areas, to be up-held in all situations and circumstances, because the Review concluded “This advice reflects the highest level of expertise in bushfire risk assessment.” (item 4.56).

    And your petitioners as in duty bound, will ever pray.
