Papers disappear from parliamentary desks

CONCERNS have been raised about security in Queensland Parliament after papers disappeared from the Katter's Australian Party seats during a division of parliament.

Recently cameras have been banned from the parliament to protect the privacy of parliamentarians' papers.

During the division the LNP Members of Parliament crossed over to sit at the non-government side of the parliamentary chamber.

Katter's Australian Party MP, Rob Katter, said that the disappearance of papers from the parliamentary chamber was a very serious issue.

"The privacy of parliamentarians' documents is essential. That is why cameras have been banned from the house," Mr Katter said.

"I have raised this issue with the Speaker and requested that it be referred to the Parliamentary Ethics Committee for investigation."

"Laptops and phones are often left on desks during divisions and this raises concerns about confidentiality."

"It reflects very poorly on all parliamentarians that documents would go missing from the chamber."
