Questions to the Speaker
I thank the member for Mayo for her question. There is an events policy that sets out the rules. It's on the members and senators portal. On page 6—I'll table a copy for the benefit of the member—it specifically sets out that political and other fundraising events are indeed allowed, and all of the costs associated with them are obviously met with by the people holding the events. That's been in the policy for a long time. These events have occurred in the House the whole time I've been here, which is long time.
