Ms GILLARD (LalorPrime Minister) (14:03): As members would be aware, and members of the public would be aware too, there is a new Chief Minister in the Northern Territory, a new Chief Minister for the Liberal Party there. I think it is appropriate for this House to note that this means that, for the first time ever, an Indigenous person will be serving as a head of government in an Australian state or territory, that person being Mr Adam Giles. Whatever the circumstances, this is a moment in history for Indigenous Australians and it is appropriate that we mark it in this chamber.
