    6.14 Executive Council procedures for an Acting Minister

    The Acting Minister must sign Executive Council documents in a Minister's absence.

    When a Minister is on leave or absent from the State, it is practice for the functions and powers of that Minister to be delegated to another Minister (section 45 of the Constitution of Queensland 2001). All Executive Council documentation sponsored by a Department during the period of the Minister's absence must be signed by the delegated Acting Minister and dated accordingly. The signature block on the Explanatory Memorandum should read the Minister's acting title only e.g. "Acting Minister for Health" etc.
