on indulgence, Speaker—We have just heard an eloquent presentation from a retiring member, based on his contribution to this parliament and this government in two great capacities, the environment and schools. He was an extraordinarily successful Australian prior to coming to this place. He will be remembered for the great contribution he has made in this place. I take to heart and am encouraged by the fact that he will hit the campaign trail to preserve our environmental achievements in Queensland once he departs this place. I wish him and his family all the best for the future.
