Before I call the Clerk, I wish to make a quick statement. This week a historic occasion occurred in our Senate, with the presence of an Auslan interpreter for both Senator David Pocock's and Senator Shoebridge's first speeches. I would like to thank Michael Ferguson and the team at Broadcasting for their work.
