The 26th Conference of Speakers and Presiding Officers of the Commonwealth will be hosted by the Parliament of Australia from Tuesday 3 to Friday 6 January 2023. The Conference, which was created as an initiative of the then Speaker of the House of Commons of Canada, Hon. Lucien Lamoureux, in 1969, brings together the Speakers and Presiding Officers of the national Parliaments of the independent sovereign states of the Commonwealth. The 26th CSPOC was to have taken place in early 2022 but was postponed due to the pandemic. The Speaker of the House of Representatives, Hon. Milton Dick, MP, and the President of the Senate, Senator Hon. Sue Lines, look forward to welcoming Conference participants in January 2023.
