Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) (2:00 PM) —Mr Speaker, I was wondering if I could have your indulgence—and I know that the Leader of the Opposition will want to join me—in conveying our very warm congratulations to the Australian Davis Cup team for the absolutely superb way in which they capped a fantastic sporting year for Australia. It was an absolutely fantastic performance from Lleyton Hewitt, Mark Philippoussis, John Newcombe, Todd Woodbridge and Mark Woodforde. Tennis has always been a great sporting talent of Australia and the epitome of tennis achievement is the Davis Cup. I know that all members of the House will join me in conveying our warm congratulations to the fantastic Australian tennis team.


Mr SPEAKER —Of course I will extend the same facility to the Leader of the Opposition.
