Ms GILLARD (LalorPrime Minister) (12:06): I rise to congratulate the member for Hindmarsh on his election as Second Deputy Speaker. The member for Hindmarsh and I have known each other for what is quite a long time now. He is a very fierce advocate for South Australia in this place, which always resonates well with me, given my family interest in Adelaide and South Australia.

He is also known across the parliament, I believe, as one of the gentler souls in this parliament. He is well admired by those he has worked alongside, both in the government and across the chamber, through the work he has done on parliamentary committees and the like. I believe he will serve in this role with distinction, rounding out a terrific team: you, Madam Speaker, and the member for Maranoa, now joined by the member for Hindmarsh.
