The PRESIDENT —I inform the Senate that on 31 March 1993, I received a letter from Senator the Hon.John Button resigning his place as a senator for the State of Victoria. Pursuant to the provisions of section 21 of the Constitution, I notified the Governor of Victoria of the vacancy in the representation of that State caused by the resignation. I have now received through His Excellency the Governor-General a facsimile copy of a certificate of the choice by the Parliament of Victoria of Kim John Carr as a senator to fill the vacancy caused by the resignation of John Norman Button. I table the facsimile copy of the certificate.
