Mr NORTHE — I also rise to acknowledge the recent passing of a Gippsland identity in John Parker. John was a key figure in the Gippsland Trades and Labour Council, a lateral thinker and a very talented craftsman and artist. John regularly discussed how industry transition could take into account not only the future welfare of workers but also the potential benefits to the wider community. Whilst I can confidently say that John and I sat on opposing sides of politics, our conversations were rarely about politics. I can sincerely say that I thoroughly enjoyed my discussions with John and, like many people in our community, my respect for him was immense. To John’s wife, Alison, and children, Tony, Pam, Steven, Christine and their families, our deepest sympathies are with you at this difficult time.
