First day for Australia’s newest MPs

Newly-elected members of the House of Representatives will come to Canberra next week to discuss their new roles as federal parliamentarians.

Australia’s newest MPs will be introduced to their new lives in the House of Representatives over the two-day seminar held 28-29 June, hearing from officials of the House of Representatives and other parliamentary and executive agencies. They will learn about the procedural and administrative aspects of their new roles and also hear from seasoned MPs before the 47th Parliament opens.

Learning to navigate the 75,000 sq. metre building, understanding Chamber proceedings and the work of Committees and what a newly-elected MP can expect during their first week on the job, will also be on the agenda.
