Over the past few weeks a number of Members have taken visitors into the Chamber over the lunch time period on sitting days, despite being advised to the contrary by the doorkeepers. Members are reminded that on sitting days, access to the Assembly Chamber is restricted to Members and relevant officials only.

These security arrangements exist to ensure the safety of all Assembly Members, and are operated by the Assembly Doorkeepers on the Speaker’s authority.
