I move:

That the House do now adjourn.

I believe we've reached an agreement to forgo the adjournment debate. So, as I move the requisite motion, I just thank you and the leader of opposition business, who's not in the chamber at the moment.

I listened very intently to the Deputy Prime Minister's speech. There are a lot of differences in this place, but I think one thing that we can all agree on is that it is a fantastic way to end the year with the Deputy Prime Minister naming every single waterway in Australia capable of receiving the human body for the purposes of swimming. I counted 22 different waterways. It was absolutely awesome. It was like the guy in Forrest Gump talking about the ways you can eat shrimp—it was just sensational!

Question agreed to.

House adjourned at 17 : 58
