STATEMENTS ON INDULGENCE – Member for Lilley – Tuesday, 20 October 2020

Mr ALBANESE (GrayndlerLeader of the Opposition) (15:21): on indulgence—Today, of course, is tenth of the twentieth, a very twin day, and for the member for Lilley it is a great day. She has asked me to inform the House that this morning she gave birth to Ossian and Dashiell Wells McCarthy, twin boys. In the words of another great Australian duo, Roy and HG, ‘Hello, boys’ from the national parliament! We congratulate Anika and Finn, and indeed I’m sure I speak on behalf of everyone in the House when I say it is quite extraordinary that a member of our national parliament has had twins while in office. They are healthy and mum is healthy as well. We wish them well and we look forward to welcoming them here in 2021.


Honourable members: Hear, hear!
