The SPEAKER (14:08): I would like to inform the House that we have present in the gallery this afternoon His Excellency Fahad Balghunaim, Minister of Agriculture in the Government of the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia. My apologies: a lot is going on today, and I did not practice pronouncing his name sufficiently! On behalf of the House I extend to him a very warm welcome.

I also inform the House that we have present in the gallery this afternoon His Excellency Dr Zalmai Rassoul, Minister of Foreign Affairs in the Government of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan. On behalf of the House I extend a very warm welcome to all our visitors this afternoon.

Honourable members: Hear, hear!
