This week is the anniversary of Senator Kitching's passing. I would express again that our thoughts are with her loved ones as that anniversary approaches. It is as I said in the condolence speech. I think I and many others in this place understand what it is to lose someone you love and how anniversaries are difficult.

Senator Kitching was someone who was deeply interested in Australia's place in the world, and I believe she would be very proud of what this Labor government is doing. She's greatly missed by many, including many of her colleagues, and by her family. I have responded to these matters at length previously, including the question you raised, and I'd refer you to those answers.
