The PRESIDENT (7:28 PM) —It is with deep regret that I inform the Senate of the death on 4 October 2002 of Mr Guy Smith, a former Usher of the Black Rod and Clerk Assistant of Senate committees. Guy Smith's career as a parliamentary officer spanned 36 years. He worked in the Senate for 25 years and in 1983 was appointed Clerk of the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly. Guy retired from the Northern Territory Legislative Assembly in 1994, and he and his wife, Jan, moved to Queensland. Tragically, Mrs Jan Smith, who had been suffering from cancer, also died on 4 October. On behalf of the Senate, I extend our sincere condolences to their family.
