Mr FITZGIBBON (HunterChief Government Whip) (15:28): On behalf of the broader federal parliamentary Labor Party—in particular those of us who sit up the back here—who on a very regular basis find reason to express our appreciation more generally to those people who keep this place running, on this occasion I would particularly like to express our appreciation to Cheryl. She will be sadly missed. She is highly regarded and respected. She does a wonderful job.

I would like to remind members that last year Cheryl and her partner, Kay, were involved in a very serious motor accident and as a result of that Kay has not returned to work. I have no doubt that Cheryl and Kay will now, in retirement, have an opportunity to spend some more quality time together.
