Senator HILL (Minister for Defence) (7:03 AM) —I want to in effect second the expressions of goodwill and happy Christmas of my colleague Ian Campbell. I thought he comprehensively covered the field of all of those very deserving individuals. Let me just mention in particular the President and officials of the Senate—the clerks, the staff of the Senate, the staff of the parliament—our personal staff and colleagues from all sides. It has been a long and at times somewhat difficult year, but I agree with Senator Ian Campbell that, for the most part, it has been carried out in reasonable cheer. For that I express my thanks to my colleagues. In doing so, I wish everyone a very happy Christmas.
