Parliament House Matters

Car Park Security Incident

The PRESIDENT (11:25): Just before we commence the committee stage, I wish to update members concerning yesterday's security incident. At around 4.45pm yesterday, a black Audi sedan forced entry to the Parliament House car park by driving through the closed roller shutters. The driver approached staff, who refused entry. Protective services officers responded, together with South Australia Police. After inspecting the vehicle, police determined that it posed no immediate risk. Shortly after 11pm last night, the man was observed re-entering the car park, and protective security officers responded. The man was later arrested. Police advise that they do not consider the incident an intentional attack on Parliament House.
