The PRESIDENT - I thank honourable senators very warmly for the gracious words they have expressed towards me, the Deputy President and the parliamentary staff. I extend to each honourable senator my best wishes for the coming festive season. In like manner I greet all of those who serve us in this chamber. I am deeply mindful of the splendid service we receive from the Senate officers. I warmly endorse the remarks expressed by the Leader of the House (Senator Carrick) with regard to Mr Bullock, the Clerk. To the officers of the chamber and the support staff, the committee secretariat staff, the attendants, the Hansard ladies and gentlemen, the Parliamentary Library staff- the staff of the Joint House Department, the refreshment rooms staff, the cleaners, the gardeners, the security officers, the mechanics and the engineers- all of those who do so much for all of us all the year- I tender thanks and admiration for a loyalty to this place which inspires and helps us all. I wish them all well for Christmas and the new year.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
