The PRESIDENT (5:15 PM) —It is with deep regret that I inform the Senate of the death on 29 October 2004 of Her Royal Highness Princess Alice, Duchess of Gloucester. Princess Alice was the widow of Prince Henry, Duke of Gloucester, who was Governor-General of Australia from 1945 to 1947, and they lived in Canberra throughout his term.

I ask honourable senators to stand for a moment in silence in memory of the late Princess Alice.

Honourable senators having stood in their places—

The PRESIDENT —I thank the Senate.
