Senator O'BYRNE (TASMANIA) - My question is directed to you, Mr President, as one of the Presiding Officers of the Parliament. In view of the growing volume of traffic at the front entrance to Parliament House and the necessity for some car drivers to wait at distances from the entrance steps, which makes it difficult for them to identify their passengers, will you confer with the appropriate authorities about the setting up of some device, such as a public address system or some system of lights, by which cars could be called to the front and so bring some order into what at times could be described as a major traffic jam?

The PRESIDENT - I undertake to examine this matter as soon as possible to see whether it may be effectively administered. But I would like to point out to honourable senators that where the jurisdiction of the Presiding Officers lies in the context of Parliament House is wrapped in the fog that seems to have descended over Canberra this morning.
