Mr MARTIN (BANKS, NEW SOUTH WALES) - My question, which is directed to you, Mr Acting Speaker, concerns the facilities for visitors to Canberra to inspect Parliament House. By way of explanation I would like to inform you that at about 10 o'clock this morning I was present at the entrance to Parliament House and watched as a large number of people were not allowed into Kings Hall due to the congestion already there. Their comments on not being allowed into their Parliament were most enlightening. I understand that the reason why these people were turned away was that there were only 2 guides on duty to cope with the visitors. I ask you to ensure that these conditions are not allowed to continue and that more guides are provided to allow our constituents to inspect their Parliament.

Mr ACTING SPEAKER -I will refer the honourable member's question to Mr Speaker and ask him to see that the honourable member receives a reply.
