Who writes NSW legislation?

The legislation of New South Wales is generally drafted by the NSW Parliamentary Counsel's Office, which also maintains this website.

Although the Parliamentary Counsel's Office chooses the words used in legislation, it does not choose the policy that is being implemented and is not involved in how it is administered.

Questions about the policy contained in legislation or its administration should be raised directly with the relevant Government Department (in the case of Acts of Parliament and legislation made by the Governor) or the person or body that makes the legislation (in other cases). The Parliamentary Counsel's Office cannot assist you with these questions.
