Mr SPEAKER —I inform the House that we have present in the gallery this afternoon Mr Michel Rocard, a member of the European Parliament and former Prime Minister of the French Republic. He is accompanied by Miss Pelissier. We extend to them both a very warm welcome. With them is His Excellency the French Ambassador to Australia.

While the House's attention is drawn to the gallery, I should also extend a warm welcome to Dr Adalberto Giavarini, the minister for foreign affairs from Argentina. He is accompanied by His Excellency the Argentinean Ambassador to Australia.

To our guests, I say how pleased we are to have you all with us on this occasion.

Honourable members—Hear, hear!
