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.

HON ALISON XAMON (North Metropolitan) [5.33 pm]: In the dying days of the fortieth Parliament, I want to finally have a bit of a spray about something that has been annoying me this entire past four years, and that is the lack of transparency around the publishing of state agreement acts. The Greens have an in-principle objection to state agreement acts. We have long maintained that they are anti-competitive because they dis-apply and modify state laws for the convenience of the other party, while the rest of us have to abide by state laws as per usual.
