Senator BROWN - I think my question is appropriately directed to you, Mr President. Will you inform the Senate before the end of the current session of the provisions to be made to ensure that senators will have access to their normal facilities in Parliament House while the South East Asia Treaty Organisation conference is being held in Parliament House in lune?

The PRESIDENT - The decision to hold the SEATO conference in Parliament House was made last year. However, 1 am currently involved in an intimate study of the question of the freedom of members of Parliament inside Parliament House when the conference is being held. 1 can assure the honourable senator that members of Parliament will be unimpeded in their movements throughout Parliament House, except for one area at the end of the House of Representatives side of the building. That will bc a secure area, but it will not in any way impede members of Parliament.
