Mr MITCHELL (McEwen) (17:36): I, too, rise to thank the House for the support and for the opportunity to be Second Deputy Speaker in the 44th Parliament. I look forward to working closely with you, Madam Speaker, and with the Deputy Speaker to soak up the experience of your knowledge and your years of wisdom in this place. I hope to get in before the Deputy Leader of the Opposition and grab that dog-eared book; I think it would be better for me than her. I want to thank the Prime Minister, the Leader of the Opposition and the Deputy Leader of the Greens for their words. It is a very humbling position to be put in, and I look forward to carrying it out to the best of my abilities to ensure that this place is run fairly and equally and that we have good, robust debate in a very well-mannered way. We need to make sure that the House runs properly and runs with the support of all members of the parliament.
