Mr ROBB (3:54 PM) —Madam Deputy Speaker, on indulgence, just very briefly—because I am conscious of the hour—could I just support the comments made so far. Mike has been a friend of mine for over 30 years. I worked with him as an agricultural economist in the Victorian departure of agriculture. From day one, he was obviously going to be a leader in the Public Service. He is an outstanding Australian. He is actually a constituent of mine now, which makes this even more special. He is a great personal friend. Throughout his career he has made an enormous contribution to Australia and Australian public service. I congratulate him on that and wish him all the best.
