The public gallery of each House is where members of the public may sit to watch the activities of the Assembly. Although the galleries were originally identical, changes over the years to accommodate technology and changed work practices have resulted in some minor differences.
The Assembly gallery also accommodates Hansard, media, and official guests with areas reserved for each of these purposes.
Hansard reporters, who transcribe the reports of debate in the House, are located directly above the Speaker’s Chair. Also above the Speaker and to the right, is the Media Gallery where journalists report on the daily business of the House. To the left is where special guests of the Speaker, such as dignitaries and visiting parliamentarians, may sit to view assembly proceedings.
