You can view the documents that are presented to the House of Representatives and are used for the business of Parliament and for MPs information. There are both current papers that are available on this website (presented after August 2002) and historical papers (pre-1951).
Historical papers, pre-1951
The Papers Past database on the New Zealand National Library website has historical documents presented to Parliament before 1951. This is a great resource for people researching New Zealand's history.
Presenting papers to the House of Representatives
These procedures explain how papers are presented to the House of Representatives by Ministers or the Speaker.
Parliamentary papers criteria
Parliamentary papers are those papers presented to the House that the Speaker designates as parliamentary papers. A paper that meets one or more of these criteria will be considered a parliamentary paper. Read more about the criteria for parliamentary papers.
If you’re reading or using papers that have been presented to the House, you should read this disclaimer from the Auditor-General.
