Prime Minister's statement

7.5 In most years the Prime Minister presents a statement to the House on the first sitting day. This statement is to review public affairs and to outline the government’s legislative and other policy intentions for the next 12 months (see the section entitled “Statements” in the chapter on non-legislative procedures in the Standing Orders of the House of Representatives (the Standing Orders)). The Prime Minister's statement is presented each year unless it is the first day of the Parliament (followed by the State Opening, with a Speech from the Throne) or an Address in Reply debate was commenced less than three months prior to the first sitting day.
