Senator JOYCE (Leader of the Nationals in the Senate) (9:36 AM) —by leave—On behalf of the National Party, I would also like to congratulate Dr Rosemary Laing. She is a friend, guide and philosopher to all of us when we arrive here and has a real passion about her job. It is great to see that she has been rewarded with the office of Clerk of the Senate. What more can I say. She is an outstanding candidate and obvious choice. I also concur with the remarks of Senator Evans and Senator Minchin and I also congratulate the President on this process of selection. We wish her all the best in her tenure and we hope that we do not make her life too miserable.
