Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) (2:02 PM) —On indulgence, Mr Speaker, I would like to congratulate the member for Werriwa on being elected as Leader of the Opposition. It is an enormous honour for anybody to be elected leader of a national political party. That applies whatever the political divide may be. May I also, whilst I am on my feet, wish the former opposition leader, the member for Hotham, and his family well for the future. I also pay my respects to a person whom I think it is well known I have always regarded as being of great stature and decency in the Australian Labor Party—that is, the member for Brand.
