Fisheries Legislation Amendment Bill 2009
I, too, would like to congratulate David Elder. I think it is a privilege to serve in this parliament with the speakers, clerks and deputy clerks that we have in this parliament. We are certainly pleased with this appointment, which I think all members of the chamber would be in furious agreement with. It is a job well done and it will no doubt continue to be done.
I note that the minister made many comments in the second reading speech to this legislation, but I am sure those comments and other comments will be backed up by the member for Gippsland, who I believe is just about ready to make his contribution to the chamber.
