The Parliamentary (Disclosure of Interests) Act (No. 22 of 1996) prescribes that a ‘Register of Interests of Members of the House of Assembly’ is maintained. The Register of Interests is comprised of the individual disclosures of pecuniary and other interests of each Member and their spouses and is made by way of the lodgement of an annual return. The Act further requires the publication of the Register of Interests.
A person who becomes a Member, other than a re-elected Member, must lodge a primary return with the Clerk within 3 months after the day on which the Member takes the oath of allegiance as required under an Act to be taken in relation to the office of Member. Thereafter, each Member must lodge an annual return on or before 1 October in any year unless the primary return date for the Member is after 30 April of that year.
The returns lodged by Members of the House of Assembly for each Financial Year are published hereunder.
