The PRESIDENT —I inform the Senate that on 5 November 1984 I received a letter from Senator Kathryn Jean Martin resigning her place as a senator for the State of Queensland. Pursuant to the provisions of section 21 of the Constitution, I notified the Governor of the State of Queensland of a vacancy in the representation of that State caused by the resignation of Senator Martin. I have now received through His Excellency the Governor-General a certificate by the Governor of the State of Queensland of the choice by the Parliament of Queensland of Warwick Raymond Parer as a senator to fill the vacancy.

The certificate was laid on the table and read by the Clerk.
