A - Z of Parliamentary Parlance

It has been more than a year since the Sixth Parliament started. Each day in the corridors of Parliament presents a plethora of learning moments.

In this infographic, we provide a useful glossary of some of the parliamentary parlance, that is language, that is used in Parliament.

While we have heard 'points of order' raised left right and centre in the houses, and other terms such as tabling reports and calls for division, do you know exactly what these terms mean?

We hope that this glossary will be a useful resource.
