Mr GOSLING (Solomon) (13:57): It may come as a shock to some members of the House who are actually getting quite old. I look at the youth up in the galleries here. It's great to see so many young people. I didn't know how to dab until recently, but now—

An honourable member: Don't do it!

Mr GOSLING: No, too late! I was taught by the member for Maribyrnong, the Leader of the Opposition. But some opposite do not understand these things. Some are past their use-by date.

However, what I want to say is that we've got great youth in the Northern Territory. I was recently at the Young Achiever Awards, and I want to congratulate Phoebe Hooper; Thomas Maxwell; Michelle Kula; Eloy Mason; Frazer Oliver; Alex Florance; Christopher Wilson; Daryl Lacey; Maggie McGowan, niece of our own member for Indi; Lisa Tiernan; Christopher Teng; and Danzal Baker, who all won awards in their respective categories. And a massive congratulations goes to the 2018 NT Young Achiever of the Year, Roger Wilyuka. Roger leads a fathers and sons reading program and mentors young fathers, encouraging them to be actively involved in their children's education.

Also, the City of Palmerston has got a new mayor and aldermen. I want to congratulate Lord Mayor Athina Pascoe-Bell and aldermen the former member for Solomon Damian Hale, Lucy Buhr, Amber Garden, Ben Giesecke, Sarah Henderson and former military men Tom Lewis and Mick Spick. Well done to all. I look forward to working with you. (Time expired)
