Visit of Belgian Delegation.

Before proceeding with Question Time, I have the honour to extend a warm welcome to a parliamentary delegation from the Senate of Belgium led by Senator Phillippe Mahoux, accompanied by officials from the Senate, who join us in the Distinguished Visitors' Gallery this afternoon.

Your visit demonstrates the continuing co-operation and friendship between our two Parliaments and countries. I confidently hope this visit will increase that co-operation and friendship, and that it will be to our mutual benefit.
