The Clerk: Honourable members, I have received the following communication from Her Excellency the Governor-General:

I desire to inform the House of Representatives that I have received a letter dated 9 October 2012 from Mr Peter Slipper MP tendering his resignation as Speaker of the House of Representatives, and that I have accepted his resignation.

Accordingly, I invite the House to elect a new Speaker.

Honourable members, the next business is the election of a Speaker. Is there a nomination?
