Visit to Parliament

I've received many requests on whether we can arrange for visits to Parliament and sit in the public gallery to observe the parliamentary proceedings ;-)

I've waited for the schedule of when questions submitted by MPs will be answered to see if there's any chance for any of my questions being answered during question time itself. Unfortunately, based on the initial schedule, the nearest to my question being answered is NO. 20 (out of ~70 a day), which means that it won't hear a verbal reply in Parliament during the 1.5 hours question time. Only the first 10-13 questions will see (hear) the light of day. (It'll still get responded to via a written reply)

Well, we are now scheduling a trip, organised by DAP Petaling Jaya for a visit to parliament.

Date: 13 May 2008 (Tue)
Time: 9.00am
Venue: Parliament Lobby

For those interested, please submit your details (Name and IC) to my assistant Erica ( ericahew (at) gmail (dot) com) by the 8th May 2008 for us to register your names.

See you then!

Good Idea!

I remember there are few meeting located at the first floor, where Minister or MPs could reserve for their meeting. Free refreshment and coffee or tea will be provided (FOC!)

Perhaps YB could varify with approprate authority.

I am interested. Just curious about a few things.

1. what time will the visit end?
2. is there a limit to the number of visitors for this trip?
3. what's on the agenda?
