3       Message from Her Majesty the Queen—Parliament House—30th anniversary of official opening

The President informed the Senate that the following message from Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II had been received, through His Excellency the Governor-General, concerning the 30th anniversary of the official opening by Her Majesty of Parliament House:

Please convey my warm thanks to the Members of the Senate and the House of Representatives for their kind letter, sent on the occasion of the Thirtieth Anniversary of the opening of Australia’s Parliament House which is being celebrated today.

I remember with fondness my visit to Canberra during Australia’s Bicentenary and was interested to learn that Parliament House now attracts more than one million visitors each year.

This message comes with my best wishes to you and the Australian people for a most successful year of events marking this milestone in the history of your National Parliament.

Elizabeth R
