MR STANHOPE (continuing):
Having said that, let me say that, ultimately, all members enter this place with a common desire to serve the people of Canberra. Mr Speaker, I remain confident that in seeking to achieve this shared goal we can work together cooperatively, constructively and with mutual respect.
MR SPEAKER: Standing order 4 requires that the Assembly proceed, at its first sitting after an election, to elect a Deputy Speaker.

That Mr Wood be elected Deputy Speaker.
