Embarrassment for Federal Hunter MP Dan Repacholi ahead of his first day in Parliament today.
After attending lunch at the Lodge with his family on Sunday they went to check out his new office in the big house of the hill overlooking Canberra.
Mr Repacholi said he had a surprise visit in his office from Parliament House security staff.
"One of my lovely daughters Asher , she hit the duress button and we certainly had security in our office to check if we were okay," he said.
