Mr MacKELLAR(6.32) —I have a strong belief that the Joint Standing Committee on the New Parliament House should look at the provision within the new Parliament House of a non-denominational chapel. I understand that there is to be what is called a quiet room, but I do not think that that has the same significance for people. I recognise there are within the Parliament people of different faiths and people with no faith at all, but I think it would add a great deal to the Parliament as a whole if there were within the building a consecrated non-denominational chapel for those who wish to take advantage of it.
