The opposition opposes paragraph (d) of this motion. While the presiding officers can exercise their discretion to approve or deny applications made directly by organisations and individuals seeking to use Parliament House as a venue, advice provided to the opposition indicates that there are believed to be no examples where that power has been used to exclude entry to someone who has been invited by a senator or member, except where someone has been excluded on law enforcement or security advice. The opposition does not endorse the views of Milo Yiannopoulos and will be supporting paragraphs (a) to (c) of this motion. The opposition believes senators should demonstrate their repudiation of these views by not attending the event in question.
