Mr LLOYD(10.58 p.m.) —I very briefly wish to add my support to my colleague the member for Forde (Mrs Elson) following that very misleading newspaper article which implied that she had not spoken very much in this chamber. As a new member also, I understand that many members take the course that they can perform far better for their electorate and their constituents by working very diligently on committees, by speaking in the party room and by talking directly to ministers.

As all members would know, speaking in this chamber is an art. It is something that has to be honed. It is something that has to be taken slowly and carefully, and the member for Forde is most certainly doing that. I can assure her constituents that they have a very worthy representative who is working tirelessly and getting results for them. I am sure she will be the member for Forde for many, many years to come.
