Questions without Notice
Senator Ronaldson, Domestic and Family Violence
Mr President, with your indulgence can I thank the Attorney-General and Senator Wong for their very generous comments. This is the last time I will rise. I did not think it was appropriate to have another valedictory; in fact, it would have been self-indulgent. I wish all colleagues long health, happiness and, certainly on this side, electoral success! Over the last 22 years it has been an extraordinary honour for me to serve my local community, the nation, the parliament—in both chambers—and my party. I thank colleagues most sincerely for your good wishes. And now I had better ask the supplementary question I suppose! Will the Attorney-General outline some of the additional steps the government is taking on the issue of elder abuse?
