I want to inform the House of the passing of former senator the Hon. John Herron AO. John was a senator for Queensland between 1990 and 2002, a former minister for Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander affairs between 1996 and 2001, and a former ambassador to Ireland and the Holy See from 2002 to 2006. He was also an outstanding surgeon and a stalwart of the Liberal Party. I want to pass on my condolences to his family and his wife, Jan, on their sad loss.
