Some federal government MPs are concerned about their security while working in their electorates, following the stabbing death of a UK MP last week.
During a coalition partyroom meeting on Tuesday, six MPs raised the issue of their safety while out in the community.
The concerns come following the death of UK Conservative MP Sir David Amess who was stabbed on Friday while meeting members of his constituency at a public event.
British police later confirmed the attack was being treated as a terrorist incident.
A 25-year-old British man was arrested at the scene following the stabbing.
Home Affairs Minister Karen Andrews told the joint parties meeting she was receiving regular briefings on the safety of MPs from the Australian Federal Police commissioner.
Sir David was the second British MP to be killed while meeting voters in his constituency in the past five years, with Labour MP Jo Cox also murdered during a similar event in 2016 in the lead up to the country's Brexit referendum.
Prime Minister Scott Morrison paid tribute on social media to Sir David in the hours after the British MP's death.
"Shocked and terribly saddened by the awful loss of Sir David Amess, stabbed and killed in the UK while doing his job, serving his community as an MP," Mr Morrison posted on Twitter.
"Our deepest sympathies and condolences to Boris Johnson, all his colleagues in the UK parliament and Sir David's family and friends."
On Monday, federal parliament passed a motion condemning the murder and paying tribute to the British MP.
