About Us

The Tasmanian Parliament has consisted of two Chambers - the Legislative Council (upper House) and the House of Assembly (lower House) - since 1856. The House of Assembly is the House of Government and the Party that has the support of the majority of Members in this Chamber generally forms the State Government. The Legislative Council is seen as a House of Review. Its primary role is providing a check on, and balance to, the lower House by providing additional scrutiny of legislation and decisions of the House of Assembly.
