Can I just thank you, as Speaker, and thank the House and the Senate for the delay in question time today to enable members from across both chambers, across the breadth of the parliament, to attend the memorial service for Lance Corporal Jack Fitzgibbon. For the information of members, the condolence motion will take place on Thursday at the beginning of question time and Joel Fitzgibbon, our friend—I think all of our friend on a day like today—has asked me to really pass on his thanks to the chamber for giving him that respect to enable the family to then be here on Thursday. I thank the House.
