The SPEAKER (10:01): As members would be aware, there has been significant discussion in relation to security at Parliament House, following the national terrorism public alert level being raised from medium to high. As Speaker I am working closely with the President and intelligence and security agencies to implement necessary security changes here at Parliament House. Members will notice changes to security practices and procedures in Parliament House which are designed to enhance and strengthen the existing security arrangements.

I would ask that members be patient as the new security procedures are implemented and, whilst every effort will be made to minimise disruption to members, these new measures are necessary to ensure safety to Parliament House and its occupants.
