Explanatory note

This note is not part of the resolution, but is intended to indicate its general effect.

The House of Representatives on 7 December 2021 made a resolution—

  • under section 25(1) and (2) of the Parliamentary Service Act 2000; and

  • specified to be effective on 25 November 2021; and

  • about the parliamentary precincts.

The resolution revoked the Parliamentary Service (Additional Parliamentary Precincts) Resolution 2006, which added to the parliamentary precincts 2 parts of Bowen House and the premises used as Select Committee Meeting Rooms 1 and 2. That 2006 resolution was revoked because it was replaced by the resolution.

The resolution also excluded from the parliamentary precincts the land and premises that are subject to the Bowen House lease. This exclusion was needed because decisions were made to surrender most of that lease, and to lease other land or premises. The Bowen House lease, or other, land or premises to be added to the parliamentary precincts were specified in the resolution.

The resolution also added specified land or premises to the parliamentary precincts. It was necessary to add them to the parliamentary precincts by resolution of the House of Representatives to ensure that, under section 26(1) and (2) of the Parliamentary Service Act 2000,—

  • control and administration of them is vested in the Speaker; and

  • the Speaker has, and may exercise, in respect of them, all the powers of an occupier under the Trespass Act 1980.

Issued under the authority of the Legislation Act 2019.

Date of notification in Gazette: 14 December 2021.

This resolution is administered by the Parliamentary Service.
