On behalf of Bruce and Denise Morcombe and the Daniel Morcombe Foundation, I would like to thank the Prime Minister, you, Mr Speaker, the Leader of the Opposition, the Deputy Prime Minister, the Deputy Leader of the Opposition, the Leader of the House, the Manager of Opposition Business and so many other members—many of the women are resplendent in red—for wearing ties, scarves, or other red items of clothing to signify their support for the principle of child safety in our community. I think it is a wonderful exhibition of us as a parliament that we are able to display a sense of solidarity as we join with the Morcombe Foundation in support of the very important principle that in a civilised society children have the right to be safe.

Honourable Members:

Honourable members—Hear, hear!
