A Message from the Speaker of the House of Assembly, the Honourable Mark Shelton, MP



On behalf of the Members of the House of Assembly, welcome to Parliament House.

The House of Assembly has been an important part of the Parliament of Tasmania for more than 130 years. Much of the time of Members of Parliament is spent in the House considering legislation and government policies.

Members are also very active outside the Chamber attending Parliamentary Committees and, of course, looking after the needs of you, the voter, through electoral work. The tour has been designed to give a general overview of the Tasmanian House of Assembly.

Parliament House is recognised as one of the best examples of Georgian style architecture in Australia, and I hope that you enjoy and find this virtual tour valuable.

The Honourable Mark Shelton MP, Speaker since 17 October 2017.
