I move:

That the Senate notes that:

  (a)   the coronation of Queen Elizabeth II occurred on 2 June 1953;

  (b)   the Diamond Jubilee of Queen Elizabeth II was celebrated between 2 June and 5 June 2012;

  (c)   during this period, Australians expressed their respect and affection for Her Majesty and their thanks for the longevity of her reign as Queen of Australia; and

  (d)   3 February 2014 will mark the 60th anniversary of the first arrival of Queen Elizabeth II in Australia.

Question agreed to.
