Who sits at the Table in front of the Clerk’s chair?
Ministers and their advisers (Ministerial or government officers) will sit at the Table of the house when a bill is being debated. Ministers respond to questions asked by members about the intent and content of the bill. These staff provide advice to the Minister but cannot take part in the debate. In the Parliament of Western Australia, Hansard reporters also sit at the Table to record the proceedings of the house.
