This is not to be taken as a precedent but, because the member for Lyne has no party colleagues in the chamber or a whip to make this announcement, I indicate to the chamber that last night Angus Morris Murray Oakeshott was born, weighing a healthy 3.2 kilograms. Mother Sara-Jane and baby Angus are both well. In one of those small-world House of Representatives type coincidences, the paediatrician present at Angus’s birth was Dr Jim Kerr, the brother of the federal member for Denison. I am sure that the House would like me to pass on our warm congratulations to the Oakeshott family.
