Senator BOSWELL (Leader of the National Party of Australia) —I also would like to congratulate Senator Crichton-Browne on his election to the position of Deputy President and Chairman of Committees. He has always been a personal friend of mine. I know that he got a little knock-back last time, but he was big enough to come again and prove that he could win the position. It is a very responsible position; it is overviewing the Senate committees and also being jointly responsible for the running of this chamber. I know that Senator Crichton-Browne will do that job well and responsibly. I would also like to take this opportunity of extending the National Party's thanks to the previous Chairman of Committees, Senator Colston. He did a very good job for which we thank him also. In conclusion, I know that the National Party senators wish Senator Crichton-Browne all the best.
