Senator COULTER (Leader of the Australian Democrats) —Former Senator Lawrence Wilkinson was not known to any of the Democrat senators. Indeed, he served in this chamber before the Australian Democrats came into existence in 1977. Nonetheless, it is clear from the resume of his career both before he entered parliament and after he was a senator that he served the Senate well, he served his constituents well and he was clearly a credit to the institution of parliament. Accordingly, we join with both the Government and the Opposition in supporting this condolence motion.
