Is it a coincidence that perhaps the most attractive member of the Opposition benches is seated so prominently in the House of Representatives?
According to the Guide to Procedures : “… Members have allotted seats. A Member’s request for the allocation of a seat should be made to the Serjeant-at-Arms but any question arising regarding the seats to be occupied by Members is determined by the Speaker (S.O. 24(b)). A Member is entitled to retain the seat occupied at the end of the previous Parliament (S.O. 24(a)) (except when a change of government necessitates a change of sides).”
