Gallery disrupts Gillard

THE government's first question time since passing the carbon tax legislation in the lower house was almost inaudible at times today.

The public gallery erupted in chanting, with the speaker Harry Jenkins cautioning visitors to behave themselves.

Mr Jenkins said he would not be clearing the gallery, but said: "I will not be endangering those who are employed by the Parliament to keep order in the gallery."

A member of the public in the gallery kept goading Prime Minister Julia Gillard with chants of "Liar."

About 80 protesters chanted "democracy is dead" and "no mandate".
