The PRESIDENT (09:40): I have been in discussions with the Speaker this morning and those discussions continue. We will be looking into this matter as a matter of urgency. Just off the top of my head from what I've read in the media, there are issues that range from the use of media and recording, to claims of assault, to potential privilege issues about senators being able to go about their business in the building. At this stage, unless there is something in my office, I have received no formal information on it, but I will be chasing this up through the course of the morning and I plan on speaking to senators involved. If anyone would like to bring anything to my attention, I would encourage them to do so. We both regard this as a grave matter, for the reasons you outlined.
