The PRESIDENT —I advise the Senate that the Speaker and I have agreed to a proposal by the Parliamentary Education Office for a new video to be made on the role and operation of the parliament. Honourable senators will be aware of an earlier film produced first in 1989 and updated in 1991. The many changes in the membership of both houses since then, and the need to show a fresh image of the role of parliament, require that the video be replaced.

  The tender to make the video has been won by ABC TV Marketing. Its team of script writers has been working closely with the Parliamentary Education Office to produce a script which will focus on the legislative, representational and scrutiny aspects of the two houses, together with the roles of the parliamentary committees and the executive government.

  I seek the cooperation of all senators and parliamentary staff in the production of the video during the next few weeks.
