The Herald reports:

and Television New Zealand have been punished following breaches of ’s rules, including one cameraman entering and filming inside Labour MP ’s suite of offices in his absence and without his permission.

withdrew parking entitlements for their networks in Parliament’s basement carpark after they failed to get permission to film in the corridor and stairwell. However he also noted a cameraman had entered an MP’s offices without permission – a clear breach of parliamentary rules.

This is a fair call. MPs are publicly accountable, but it doesn’t mean their offices are public space.
