What is a non-elected officer and where can I find some interesting facts?
The Clerk of the House of Representatives.

Thank you for your question, Lee.
In addition to members of parliament—who are elected representatives of the people—non-elected officers also work in the Senate and House of Representatives. Non-elected officers are parliamentary employees who have a range of important responsibilities and duties to make sure the Australian Parliament can do its work.
