I rise to support the remarks of the Hon. Tung Ngo and thank him for his summation of the hard work of the Aboriginal Lands Standing Committee. I would say that the Aboriginal Lands Standing Committee is a tripartisan committee, not a bipartisan committee, because of course we have the Hon. Tammy Franks who participates with some vigour in that committee, as Aboriginal affairs is obviously quite a passionate endeavour of the Hon. Tammy Franks.
This is a committee that requires quite a deal of commitment from its committee members. I know I speak on behalf of all committee members when I say that to find time to travel large distances to meet with communities is quite taxing with regard to a member of parliament's time, taking into account their other commitments. However, I know that all members, to the best of their ability, look forward to those meetings.
It is a committee that really does work well together. I welcome the new members of the committee and thank past members for their participation and dedication. I thank Jason Caire, our secretary, for the work that he does, under instruction from the committee. With those few words, I look forward to the passing of the motion.
