Ms PLIBERSEK (Minister for Housing and Minister for the Status of Women) (3:32 PM) —Mr Speaker, I rise to ask your indulgence. There are some very special guests in the gallery today from the Oasis Youth Support Network, some young people who participated in a fabulous documentary that I know many members of the House would have watched and been very moved by. We have Captain Paul Moulds and his wife, Robyn, who work with these young people; other staff from the Oasis Youth Support Network; Ian Darling, from the Caledonia Foundation; and, most importantly, those young people who shared their lives so very bravely with so many Australian viewers to let Australians know firsthand what the experience of being young and homeless is like.

The SPEAKER —The Leader of the Opposition approached me earlier in the day on a similar subject. I call the Leader of the Opposition.
