The Speaker is the Presiding Officer of the House of Representatives. The role of the Speaker is to ensure the orderly flow of business, the House of Representatives observes parliamentary rules and traditions, both written and unwritten. It is the Speaker's duty to interpret these rules impartially, to maintain order, and to defend the rights and privileges of Members, including the right to freedom of speech.

To preserve the trust of the House, the Speaker's actions must be impartial. Consequently, the Speaker never participates in debate, and works to balance the right of the Government to transact business in an orderly manner and the right of all Members to be heard in debate.

The current Speaker of the House of Representatives is Hon. Sir Gerald WATT, KCN, QC, with Hon. Dean JONAS as Deputy Speaker.
