The SPEAKER (17:37): inform the House of the deaths of Michael John Maher OAM, a former member of this House, and of Janet Frances Powell AM, a former senator. Michael Maher died on Sunday, 29 September 2013. He represented the division of Lowe from 1982 to 1987. Janet Powell died on Monday, 30 September 2013. She represented the state of Victoria from 1986 to 1993.

I knew both of those people. I knew Michael Maher as a fellow student at Sydney University Law School where we did jostle from time to time for positions in student politics. I also served with Senator Powell in the Senate. As a mark of respect to the memory of the deceased, I invite honourable members to rise in their places.

Honourable members having stood in their places—

The SPEAKER: I thank the House.
