Senator FORSHAW (New South Wales) (12:52): I endorse the remarks of Senator Faulkner, who has spent many years on this committee and provided valuable experience to it, and the remarks of Senator Trood. I agree entirely with what he said, particularly his mention of the previous chair before the last election, Mr Arch Bevis, who was a terrific chairman. I think it was definitely a loss to the parliament when he, unfortun­ately, lost his seat. Finally, I thank Senator Faulkner once again for his kind words about me and Senator Trood. This is an extremely important committee of the parliament. It is really an honour to be asked to serve on it. I seek leave to continue my remarks later.

Leave granted; debate adjourned.
