Mr GIBBONS (Bendigo) (13:35): I endorse the words of the member for Holt in seconding this nomination of the member for Chisholm for Deputy Speaker. I would also like to indicate my respect for the retiring Speaker, Harry Jenkins. I think he has been a great Speaker for this place. He served in the role with great distinction. Of course, we all know that is a family tradition. I give him my best wishes.

The member for Chisholm will make an outstanding Deputy Speaker. I have served in this parliament with her for just over 13 years now. She has always been a woman of considerable integrity, sound judgment and good humour. I think the parliament will be well served by such a person as Anna in that job and I have no hesitation in recommending her for the position.

The SPEAKER: Are there any further nominations?
