Western Australian parliamentary debates

Hansard is the traditional name for the printed transcripts of parliamentary debates in the Westminster system of government. It is not a word-for-word transcript of debates in Parliament. Its terms of reference are those set by a House of Commons Select Committee in 1893, as being a report "which, though not strictly verbatim, is substantially the verbatim report with repetitions and redundancies omitted and with obvious mistakes corrected, but which, on the other hand, leaves out nothing that adds to the meaning of the speech or illustrates the argument."

Excerpted from Hansard on Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia.
