Senate President Stephen Parry has encouraged New Zealand to restore its upper house of parliament, which was abolished in 1951.

NZ parliamentary speaker David Carter and parliamentary clerk David Wilson are observing a Senate estimates hearing in Canberra on Monday.

"This could be the road back to them getting a bicameral system - let's hope this works," Senator Parry told the hearing.
