Mr Reg Walters—retirement

Statement by Speaker

MR SPEAKER: Before I call on the minister to move the adjournment debate, I would like to make a brief statement concerning our senior chamber attendant, Reg Walters. Today marks the last day in the chamber that Reg will be with us before he retires next month. He will probably remember this session as it has been quite a lengthy exposure to the parliamentary process.

Reg has been with the Assembly since 1997—firstly, as a sessional attendant and, later, in his current role. I wager that when he writes his book it will have some interesting things in it because my experience with attendants is that they pick up a fair bit around the place. So, Reg, I urge you to write a book one day; it would be interesting reading.

Reg's always friendly demeanour has been appreciated by all of us all of the time. We will miss you, Reg. On behalf of all members I would like to wish you and your family all the best for the future and trust that you enjoy the rest of your life doing whatever it is you want to do and, I hope, remembering us warmly.

Members: Hear, hear!
