Mr HUNT (Flinders) (15:36): Mr Speaker, on indulgence: I want to very briefly acknowledge the very good news that Pat Farmer, the former member for Macarthur, recently completed his run from the North Pole to the South Pole. He lost his preselection, reacted appropriately and decided to run from the top of the earth to the bottom of the earth. It was a 21,000-kilometre odyssey, an enormous amount of pain, a great adventure and a great Australian achievement. He marked it with a simple message via text to anybody who was on his list—'Job done'. So, well done, Pat, and congratulations.

The SPEAKER: I am sure that all honourable members would associate themselves with the congratulations to the former member for Macarthur.
