Dear Family, Friends and Colleagues,

It is an incredible privilege to invite you to my First Speech to the Australian Parliament, where you will get to hear about my vision for our vibrant community and what’s important to me as I begin my journey as the new Member for Bennelong.

If you are planning to attend, please RSVP your attendance here by no later than COB Monday 19 September 2022 (so we can confirm Parliament House Guest Passes and Escorting Arrangements, and for post speech celebrations and booking purposes). Places are limited so please ensure you RSVP early.

If you are making the journey down from Sydney, or other parts of Australia, given it is a parliamentary sitting week I would encourage you to consider booking flights and accommodation as soon as possible.

If you are unable to physically attend, you are also welcome to join the House of Representatives virtually and tune into my speech via Watch Parliament – Parliament of Australia (aph.gov.au)

I thank you in advance for your support and attendance, and look forward to seeing you in Canberra, or virtually, on Monday 26 September, 2022.

In the meantime please do not hesitate to contact Tori.holliday@aph.gov.au if you have any queries about the invitation, First Speech, or Post Speech Celebrations.

Yours sincerely,

Jerome Laxale MP

Member for Bennelong
