ANTHONY ALBANESE MP

LEADER OF THE AUSTRALIAN LABOR PARTY

MEMBER FOR GRAYNDLER

LABOR'S PJCIS MEMBERSHIP

Anthony Byrne, the Member for Holt, has today offered his resignation to me on the

Parliamentary Joint Committee on Intelligence and Security (PJCIS).

I have accepted Mr Byrne’s resignation.

I will be recommending to the Prime Minister that Senator Jenny » « McAllister » hold the position of

Deputy Chair of the Committee. In addition, I will be recommending that Peter Khalil, Member

for Wills, be appointed as a Committee member.

Senator « McAllister and Mr Khalil will make outstanding contributions to this Committee.

These two members of parliament will continue Labor’s tradition of strongly supporting the

work of this Committee and the role it plays in our democracy.

Mr Byrne has served the PJCIS in a number of roles since 2005 including as Chair and Deputy

Chair.

I thank Mr Byrne for his important contributions to this Committee in Australia’s national

interest.
