    Well thank you very much Artiene for that very eloquent and warm introduction. It’s a great honour to be here today. And thank you Aunty Matilda for your Welcome to Country on behalf of the Ngunnawal people who have been the custodians of this land for thousands and thousands of years, for time out of mind. And I want to acknowledge all of the distinguished guests here today and of course, above all today, the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people here among us and all of those across the nation.

    Alison, thank you, thank you very much and I also acknowledge the traditional owners of the Ngunnawal land on which we meet and I want to thank you very much for the Welcome to Country. We hope that Tina and her son are doing well. Sorry that she’s not here. I pay my respects on behalf of all of us to their Elders, past and present and of course the Elders from other communities many of whom are here today.

    Philip, your service to the Parliament and the nation is so remarkable. Multicultural Australia, the Australia in which we live today, the most successful multicultural society in the world has in large part been shaped by you and by many others, but there is no-one, no-one in the Parliament today that has done more to make us the successful multicultural nation that we are than you and we thank you so much for that and it’s great that you’re going to be continuing to provide service as a Special Envoy on Human Rights, one of your great passions.

    Today Philip Ruddock has announced he will not renominate for parliament at the next election. Philip is the longest serving member of our Parliament – he is the Father of the House and he has been a dear friend, wise counsel and an inspiration to generations of Liberals. Philip was the longest serving Immigration Minister in our history. In that role, he was able to deploy his long standing commitment to multiculturalism and human rights.
