Mr ALBANESE (Leader of the House) (3:50 PM) —Mr Speaker, on indulgence, I would like to place on record my thanks. This week sees a changeover of the Parliamentary Liaison Officer, with Tony Levy leaving the position after many years of honourable service both to this government and this House and to the previous parliament. We actually extended Tony Levy’s stay as much as we could in this position. He is very professional. Members on both sides of the House would acknowledge that.

I welcome the appointment of Henry Thomson, who has worked in this area servicing the functioning of the parliament for a period of time and is an excellent appointment to the position of Parliamentary Liaison Officer. I think he has big shoes to fill if he is going to be as good as Tony Levy was in this position. I place on record my welcome, as the Leader of the House, to Henry, but particularly my sincere thanks to Tony Levy.
