What are ten things members of parliament do?
Hi, thanks for your question.
Members of parliament are either senators or members of the House of Representatives. There are some things all members of parliament do, such as:
- represent the Australian people
- debate and vote on bills – proposed laws
- discuss issues of national and international importance.
There are also some differences, for example senators participate in Senate estimates hearings where they investigate how the government is spending taxpayers' money.

This diagram illustrates what members of the House of Representatives do in the Australian Parliament. Members: debate and vote on bills—proposed laws; represent the views of people in their electorate; work on parliamentary committees to examine important issues; attend parliamentary party meetings to decide on party policy; scrutinise—closely examine—the work of the government; and discuss issues of national and international importance.
