Agreement for Members to Contribute Remotely to Parliamentary Proceedings; Presentation
by leave—I table an amended Agreement for Members to Contribute Remotely to Parliamentary Proceedings. I commence by thanking the Manager of Opposition Business for his agreement and assistance. This is a small modification, essentially, to allow the Prime Minister to attend and answer questions in question time today remotely, noting that the original draft of this agreement included that remote contributions were to occur at either electorate offices or Commonwealth parliamentary offices, of which The Lodge is neither. This amended arrangement will include The Lodge in that list.
