An inquiry was held in Brisbane on Wednesday 13 December 2017 into objections to the proposed redistribution of electoral divisions in Queensland, as outlined in a report published by the Redistribution Committee for Queensland on Friday 29 September 2017.

At the inquiry, individuals or organisations were able to address the augmented Electoral Commission for Queensland on any matter raised in an objection to the proposed redistribution of Queensland or in a comment on these objections.

Matters raised in objections and comments on objections include the:

  • boundary between the proposed Divisions of Blair and Ryan
  • boundary between the proposed Divisions of Brisbane and Ryan
  • boundary between the proposed Divisions of Brisbane and Lilley
  • electoral division in which Boulia Shire is located
  • electoral division in which Burdekin Shire is located
  • name of the proposed Division of Wide Bay.

Topics raised in objections and comments on objections that were not raised at the inquiry were considered by the augmented Electoral Commission for Queensland as part of its deliberations.

Four submissions were made at the inquiry into objections held by the augmented Electoral Commission in Brisbane on Wednesday 13 December 2017.
