Hawke, Hon. R.J.L.

Condolence

I rise to support the Premier's motion and acknowledge the contribution made by the Premier and the Leader of the Opposition in respect of the outstanding contribution that Mr Hawke has made to political life, and indeed to public life generally, covering the period that he led the ACTU. I would like to make a few comments and reflect on Mr Hawke's visits to South Australia in the 1970s, during his time as the leader of the ACTU, which I think was an important developmental and educational period for the purposes of, ultimately, public life in the parliament and in government.
