Mr ABBOTT (Leader of the Opposition) (2:04 PM) —by leave—I rise to support the statement of the Prime Minister. Our thoughts are with the families, fellow soldiers and friends of the dead and wounded at this grim time. I again commend the work that Australian Defence Force personnel are doing in Afghanistan in very dangerous conditions. I hope that knowledge of their vital contribution to our security will be of some consolation to their families and friends, and I wish to assure the Prime Minister that the mission of Australian forces in Afghanistan has the support of the whole House.

Honourable members—Hear, hear!
