Secretariat staff

MR RUGENDYKE (10.35): I will be very brief. I had intended to mention, during the debate on this leases bill, my wholehearted thanks and appreciation for the excellent work of the clerical staff, Mr Clerk, Ms Weeks and Mr Catchpole. We particularly thank them for the guidance given by the running sheet, because I am sure that all members will agree that, without that running sheet, we would all be totally lost. I do give members of the secretariat, as well as, of course, other secretarial staff and officers of this place, departmental officers, and the respective advisers of each of our offices, my wholehearted thanks on behalf of all members.

MR SPEAKER: Thank you, Mr Rugendyke. I can but echo your thanks. I think that the secretariat and other people have done a magnificent job. I sincerely hope we do not have to go through the same thing again. There is a great deal of work involved in this, and I would hope that, in future, we can organise things a little better in relation to legislation.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Assembly adjourned at 10.36 pm
