In April 2013, Queensland's Attorney-General Jarrod Bleijie announced a parliamentary committee inquiry into establishing legislation that will regulate outdoor advertising in the same way that children’s television is regulated.

On 7th August this year, the inquiry into sexually explicit outdoor advertising conducted its first public hearing, and ACL's Queensland Director Wendy Francis addressed the inquiry supporting stricter regulation around sexualised material being displayed in public spaces.

A second public hearing will take place on 21st August, and a report will be handed down by January 2014.
