Order of Business
Senators Humphreys, Lombard and Kieran O'Donnell raised the important issue of climate change and I am happy to review and reflect upon the remarks made about the recent statements in the House on climate change. I would be happy to meet Senator Humphreys and the group leaders in the new year to discuss that issue.
I join with Senator Humphreys in appealing to all motorists on the road this year not to drink and drive. I ask that we ensure we have safe passage on our roads for motorists, pedestrians and cyclists. I appeal to everybody during the course of this Christmas season to drive with care and consideration and not to engage in drink driving.
With regard to the other transport matters, I am sure our fine Minister for Transport, Tourism and Sport, Deputy Ross, will take notice of the Senator's remarks on his car going around a particular part of the Minister's constituency.
