Mr WINDSOR (3:32 PM) —On indulgence, Mr Speaker, I wish to make a few remarks on the Minister for Finance and Deregulation—a visionary in terms of the National Party!


The SPEAKER —I remind the member for New England that he is speaking on indulgence, even if he has some support somewhere in this chamber!


Mr WINDSOR —Thank you, Mr Speaker. I recognise his very hard work, and I also recognise the work that he did on telecommunications while in opposition. The benefits that we will hopefully enjoy in coming decades will be partly due to the work that he put in during that period, and I congratulate him for that.

On behalf of the crossbenches, I also congratulate the Prime Minister, and the former Prime Minister for the very hard work that he did for this nation. I wish the new Prime Minister the very best of luck. I would urge her not to forget our country constituents. This is a time of challenge, when we all need to pull together—particularly in the country, where people are experiencing some difficulty.
