I note that it is the 21st anniversary today of the class of '96. Together with the member for Jagajaga and the member for Hunter, we make up a very select group. I do note that Labor are now a majority of the class of '96. We certainly were not at the time!

I thank the member for Grayndler for that. I am a member of the class of 2001. Can I just say that 2 March 1996 was a happy day for both of us, for different reasons.
