This afternoon, at Government House, His Excellency the Honourable Paul de Jersey AC, Governor of Queensland, received the Clerk of the Parliament, Mr Neil Laurie for the presentation of the following two Bills, to which the Governor granted Assent:

Liquor (Artisan Liquor) Amendment Bill 2021: A bill for an Act to amend the Liquor Act 1992 to support and regulate the emerging craft beer and artisan spirits industries.

Waste Reduction and Recycling (Plastic Items) Amendment Bill 2021: A bill for an Act to amend the Waste Reduction and Recycling Act 2011 for particular purposes.
