Senator BROWNHILL (Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Trade and Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Primary Industries and Energy)(7.25 p.m.) —On behalf of the government, I would like to add to the remarks that have been made by others about John Coates. I always found John Coates a person who was good to deal with. He obviously played his politics pretty hard and I am quite sure he will continue to that, even now in retirement.

On behalf of the government I would like to add our best wishes for a happy retirement. People who come into this place do work hard and I hope now he is able to enjoy some of the life back in his own state with his own family.
