1992 Queensland Cabinet Minutes released

On January 1st, Queensland State Archives (QSA) released the 1992 Cabinet Minutes of the Queensland government after expiry of the 30-year embargo period. The Minutes reveal the decision-making of the Goss Labor government in its third full year in office.

Details of the Minutes can be accessed via QSA’s online search facilities, linked below. TJ Ryan Foundation Research Associate, Chris Salisbury, produced reports for QSA on his research of the Goss Cabinet’s decisions and their background context, also linked below.

‘1992 was an election year in Queensland, unfolding against a backdrop of significant national and international events.

‘… With a state election due this year, the Goss government finalised some outstanding items on its legislative agenda. Prominent among these, the long-promised Heritage Act came into being in March, finally bringing Queensland into line with the rest of Australia’s mainland states in having legislated protections (including a new Heritage Register) for recognised heritage sites.’
