Mr SPEAKER - Order ! I interrupt the honourable member for Gellibrand and seek his acquiescence in my making an announcement. I have to inform the House that we have present in the gallery this afternoon a parliamentary delegation from Turkey led by Senator Mehmet Unaldi, Vice President of the Senate. On behalf of the House I extend a very warm welcome to the members of the delegation.

May I also extend to members of the delegation, and through them to the Parliament and the people of Turkey, the sympathy of the Australian House of Representatives in respect of the tragic loss of life and property that occurred as a result of the earthquake which devastated areas of the Van Province on 24 November and the severe blizzard conditions which followed.

Suggest corrections
