23      Death of former senator the Honourable Susan Maree Ryan AO

The President informed the Senate of the death, on 27 September 2020, of the Honourable Susan Maree Ryan AO, a former minister and senator for the Australian Capital Territory from 1975 to 1988.

The Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Cormann), by leave, moved—That the Senate records its deep regret at the death, on 27 September 2020, of the Honourable Susan Maree Ryan AO, former senator for the Australian Capital Territory and Minister for Education, Minister Assisting the Prime Minister for the Status of Women and Special Minister of State in the Hawke Government, places on record its appreciation for her service to the Parliament and the nation, and tenders its profound sympathy to her family in their bereavement.

The motion was supported and all senators present joined in a moment of silence.

Question passed.
