It is my very sad duty to inform the Senate of the death overnight of Senator Alex Gallacher, who served Australia and South Australia with distinction in this place since his election in 2010. A motion of condolence will be moved at a later date, to be determined in consultation with his family and his colleagues. As a mark of respect to the memory of Senator Gallacher, I ask senators to join in a moment of silence.

Honourable senators having stood in their places—

With the agreement of the Senate, the Senate stands adjourned until midday tomorrow.

Senate adjourned at 14:01
