The debating Chamber of the House of Representatives has an individual seat for each MP. The seats are arranged in a horseshoe shape. By convention, MPs of the main Government party sit to the right of the Speaker, with the largest Opposition party on the left-hand side. Smaller parties are usually seated in the curved rows at the other end of the Chamber, which are known as the cross-benches. The seating plan shows the designated seat for each MP.

Ngā pānga moni a ngā MP
Every year, MPs declare their personal interests in a number of specific categories. These include financial interests, such as shares in a company, and other interests, such as being a trustee of a trust. Their interests are then compiled into a Register that is presented to the House. The Register’s purpose is to provide transparency of MPs’ interests, and to strengthen public trust and confidence in parliamentary processes and decision-making.
