 6SUSPENSION OF STANDING ORDERS MOVED

Mr Bowen  moved—That so much of the standing orders be suspended as would prevent the Member for McMahon from moving the following motion forthwith—That the House:

(1)notes that:

(a)in the Budget, the Government blindsided rural and regional Australia with an internationally uncompetitive 32.5 per cent backpacker tax;

(b)the Government dropped the rate of the backpacker tax to a still uncompetitive rate of 19 per cent;

(c)the Government again shifted the rate of the backpacker tax to 15 per cent because of a desperate deal in the Senate;

(d)the Government’s desperate deal was rejected by the Senate which instead proposed a compromise of 10.5 per cent;

(e)the Government has refused to accept the Senate’s sensible compromise, threatening to allow the backpacker tax to revert to its original internationally uncompetitive rate of 32.5 per cent which will harm the tourism, hospitality and agricultural industries; and

(f)only this morning, the Minister for Finance said “The deal that is on the table for the Senate is a 15 per cent rate; if it’s not 15 per cent then it will be 32.5 per cent”;

(2)calls on the Government to end the chaos and deal with the backpacker tax immediately by accepting the sensible compromise offered by the Senate; and

(3)therefore,suspends so much of the standing and sessional orders as would prevent order of the day No. 3 realating to the Income Tax Rates Amendment (Working Holiday Maker Reform) Bill 2016 being called on immediately.

 36Protest in public gallery on 30 November—STATEMENT BY SPEAKER

The Speaker made the following statement:  

Yesterday, question time in the House was interrupted by a group of protesters in the public gallery.

I made the decision to suspend proceedings at the time which, as I said yesterday, was a last resort in what were clearly extraordinary circumstances. As I noted yesterday, our purpose here is to conduct the business of the House, which we were prevented from doing for a period of time while those people who were disrupting the House were removed from the gallery.

The actions yesterday of those people who prevented the House from conducting its business, also prevented all the other visitors in the galleries from observing their parliament and their representatives at work, as well as those watching and listening to the broadcast from outside this Chamber.   

We all want members of the public to be able to visit this building and observe the work of the House of Representatives in person, but there is a balance between the right of people to access the galleries and the need for the House to be able to operate and conduct its work without interruption.

Yes, we are a robust democracy but this will never give license to a vocal minority to shout down elected representatives, damage this building, violate the democratic rights of other people wishing to view proceedings and to be quite frank alarm and possibly frighten the many innocent citizens and school children who I know were inside and outside the chamber yesterday.

Yesterday I indicated that a thorough investigation would be undertaken, and I can advise the House that this investigation has commenced. Among other things, this investigation will cover:

Procedures for security screening of people attending the public galleries;

Ticketing procedures for question time; and

procedures for non-ticketed attendees.

I have spoken with the Head of the Department of Parliamentary Services, Mr Rob Stefanic and as a consequence of these discussions we will also look into security response procedures and capacity in the building.

The President and I are currently considering all aspects in relation to cost recovery for the damage that was done to the Chamber and any possible charges.

Protest Activity this morning

In addition to the protest activity yesterday, Members would be aware that early this morning, two protesters accessed the Queens Terrace and unfurled a banner on the facade of Parliament House.   A further 13 protesters entered the forecourt pond and poured red coloured dye into it.

The protesters in the pond eventually left after a request by the Australian Federal Police. The protesters that abseiled from the façade removed the banner and lowered themselves after a direction by the Australian Federal Police.

I am advised that the ACT Police are considering charges in respect of the protesters that abseiled off the façade.

As a final word I wish to thank the officers of the Parliamentary Security Service and the Australian Federal Police who removed the protesters yesterday and today in such a professional and orderly way.

 I will update Members on outcomes of the investigation as appropriate. I thank the House.
