Work Senator Katy Gallagher said the minute should have been recognized.
“Ladies have been doing it in parliaments around the globe,” she disclosed to Sky News Australia.
“Ladies will keep on having babies and in the event that they need to carry out their employment and be grinding away and take care of their infant… actually we will need to suit that.”
Until a year ago, MPs in the lower House of Representatives could take babies just into parliamentary workplaces or open exhibitions.
