Senator HILL (Leader of the Opposition) —On behalf of the Opposition, I join with the Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Button) in expressing our regret at the recent death of former Senator Lawrence Wilkinson. Senator Button outlined former Senator Wilkinson's background and experience before coming to this place. He also outlined his contribution to the Senate, serving on a number of different committees during his eight years, approximately, in the Senate. The Opposition recognises that distinguished contribution. We also recognise the work and effort he particularly made in the areas of primary industry and telecommunications. He died just before his eighty-eighth birthday. On behalf of Opposition senators, I extend our sincere sympathy to his family in their bereavement.
