Statements on indulgence – Italian National Day

Mr ALBANESE (Grayndler—Leader of the House and Minister for Infrastructure and Transport) (16:09): Very briefly, Mr Speaker, I also wish on indulgence to acknowledge that today is Italian National Day; indeed, this year is the 150thanniversary of the unification of Italy. I will be attending a function later today in Leichardt. I know you support the Farm Vigano project, which, of course, is in your electorate, Mr Speaker, I note that the Italian community plays an important role here in Australia.
