The PRESIDENT —Before I call Senator Bell, I draw the attention of honourable senators to the presence in the President's gallery of a Commonwealth Parliamentary Association study group. The group includes members of the parliaments of Cook Islands, Niue and Vanuatu. On behalf of honourable senators I have pleasure in welcoming you to the Senate and hope that your stay here will be productive and rewarding—and a little enlightening, although I doubt it.
