Message from the Speaker

Speaker Peter Wellington MPIt is a great honour to have been elected as Speaker of the 55th Parliament and to serve the people of Queensland in this capacity.

Fairness, equality and justice for all have been the cornerstone of my life as a police officer, a solicitor and a politician. As Speaker, it is my duty to continue upholding these values for all Queenslanders.

Since 1998, I have proudly served the people of Nicklin as their Independent local member of parliament and on being elected Speaker on 24 March 2015, I stated that I owed no favours to vested interests, lobby groups or parties. I want to reassure Queenslanders that my election as Speaker will not prevent me from continuing to be a strong voice and advocate for the people I represent and for matters dear to my heart.

Hon. Peter Wellington MP
Speaker of the Queensland Parliament
