The SPEAKER (14:43): I thank the Prime Minister and the Leader of the Opposition for those remarks. Can I say very briefly, as someone who has read, like many members, his books on Gallipoli and on the Western Front, Les told the Anzac story like no other. Many have written of Anzac but none have done it better, in a more compelling or captivating way, than him. I've purchased those two books on many, many occasions. I think booksellers have wondered why I keep purchasing the same books; it's because they're regular history prizes. Passing on that history, those words will live on and be read by students in the decades to come. As a mark of respect, I ask all present to rise in their places.

Honourable members having stood in their places—

The SPEAKER: I thank the House.
