Senator FIELDING (Leader of the Family First Party) (4:23 PM) —On behalf of Family First, I join senators in support of this condolence motion and also share in the sympathies expressed for the family and friends of Garth McEvoy, Craig Senger and Nathan Verity. These were ordinary Australians going about their work. It is really outrageous that gutless and cowardly attacks by a few cause such heartache in people’s lives. These killed nine people and injured 55. Our war on terror efforts will continue. We need to stand up for common decency and freedom and stand against these cowardly and gutless people that strike in this way. Our thoughts and prayers go to the families of these three Australians that have died.

Question agreed to, honourable senators standing in their places.
