Parliament burqa plan to be reviewed
A plan to force burqa-wearing Parliament House visitors to view debates from behind glass is being reviewed.
Parliamentary officers decided people with facial coverings could only watch parliament from glassed-off galleries usually reserved for school children.
But Prime Minister Tony Abbott requested a rethink of the controversial plan, saying people in public areas of parliament ought to be allowed to wear what they want.
