Human Rights: Vietnam
In the gallery today we have a number of Vietnamese people who have presented to Senator Furner and me a petition from 55,361 petitioners. They have come into the gallery to see moved a bipartisan motion on human rights. I am sure that I speak for everyone in the parliament when I say that we all appreciate what the Vietnamese community has given to Australia. Mr President, I thank you for your leave and I thank them.
