Order! I draw the attention of honourable senators to the presence in the chamber of a parliamentary delegation from the Islamic Republic of Pakistan, led by the Hon. Chaudhary Amir Hussain, Speaker of the National Assembly. On behalf of all senators, I wish you a very warm welcome to Australia and, in particular, to our Senate. With the concurrence of honourable senators, I propose to invite the speaker to take a seat on the floor of the Senate.
