I'd like to draw to the attention of the House that we have present in the gallery this afternoon a great friend of Australia, former Prime Minister of New Zealand John Key. On behalf of the House, we extend a very warm welcome to you.

Honourable members: Hear, hear!

The Prime Minister, on indulgence.

All honourable members welcome Sir John Key, former Prime Minister of New Zealand and a great friend of Australia. As he surveys the dignified debates in the House of Representatives, I can just discern a look of relief on his face! Welcome, John. It's great that you're here.
