HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [6.20 pm]: I rise on behalf of the Greens to note the end of what has been an interesting term and a quite unprecedented and extraordinary year. Every year of this term, our members have taken turns to give the traditional Christmas greeting, and here I am doing so at the end of this term. I was concerned that members had not heard enough from me, so I am here to ensure that they get to hear more from me now!


HON PETER COLLIER (North Metropolitan — Leader of the Opposition) [9.45 pm]: One of the great tragedies of COVID-19 is that families and friends have not been able to attend the funerals of their loved ones. On 4 April 2020 the world lost a genuinely wonderful woman. Her name was Andrea Mitchell. This is part of the eulogy that I delivered at her funeral which was, unfortunately, attended by only 10 people. In normal circumstances hundreds would have taken the opportunity to say goodbye to this magnificent woman.
