Senator McLAREN (South Australia) - I, too, wish to join other honourable senators in paying a tribute to Roy Bullock on his retirement. I also place on record my personal appreciation of the assistance he has given me in my 10 years as a member of the Senate. 1 have always found Roy Bullock to be a very humble man. Despite the high office he held as a parliamentary officer, one could go to him with any request at any hour of the day or night and he was always willing and available to give any assistance which one requested.

My wife and 1 had the pleasure of enjoying the company of Roy and his wife in Prague last year when 1 was a delegate to a meeting of the InterParliamentary Union. Roy was attending as a delegate to a meeting of the Association of Secretaries-General of Parliament in that city. The four of us spent many happy hours together while we were there and 1 think this was due in the main to the fact that our everyday interests were somewhat similar and our tastes were very moderate. I wish Roy and Mrs Bullock every happiness in their retirement. I am sure that he will put his green fingers to good use whenever his health allows him to do so. I join every other senator in wishing Roy and Mrs Bullock every happiness and good health in their retirement.
