Can I associate the opposition with the very fine words that have just been spoken by the member for Fairfax.

It's said that it takes a village to raise a child, and what the Daniel Morcombe Foundation teaches us all is that it also takes a village to protect a child, and because of the Daniel Morcombe Foundation my children are safer, along with the millions of children around this country. It's an incredible legacy of the life of Daniel Morcombe, a life which was stolen.

Bruce and Denise Morcombe might just be the bravest people in the country. They have faced an utterly unimaginable pain, but, in facing it over the last 15 years, what they've done is make Australia a much safer place for our kids. So I want to wish Bruce and Denise and all those at the Daniel Morcombe Foundation all the very best for tomorrow's Day for Daniel.
