Senator TATE (Tasmania) - I wish to comment briefly on the notable absence from this chamber over the last few weeks of the

Clerk, Mr Bullock.We understand that he has been ill and unable to perform his duties within the chamber and in the service of honourable senators generally. Mr President, the Clerk is held in very high regard by honourable senators on all sides of the chamber. He is a man of absolute integrity and of good humour. It is always a pleasure and always helpful when one has to deal with him. I certainly look forward to his return to the chamber and to the Senate generally in our next sitting week. I am sure that I am expressing the views of other honourable senators in asking you, Mr President, to convey to Mr Bullock our wishes for his speedy recovery.

The PRESIDENT - I appreciate the remarks. I shall have much happiness in conveying to Mr Bullock the sentiments expressed by Senator Tate, which I feel are those of the chamber.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Senate adjourned at 11.22 p.m. until Tuesday 15 April at 3 p.m. unless otherwise called together in accordance with the resolution agreed to this day.
