number every box

Mr T.R. Buswell: […] When we think about it, the big portion of unclaimed state super is with the Government Employees Superannuation Board. There would be some people from overseas who have worked temporarily in government agencies from time to time—I have had some in my office—but it would not be to the same extent we might have in hospitality or in some of the other industries that
were alluded to.

Mr M.P. WHITELY: Nonetheless, it is probably worth having a look because it is better with us than with them.

Mr T.R. Buswell: When you’re a senator you can find out; you’ll be right at the centre of power!

Mr M.P. WHITELY: I am looking forward to that—I am looking forward to the generous superannuation entitlements! But on the odd chance I do not get on the ticket —

Mr T.R. Buswell: I tell you what: if you get on the ticket, I will do my first ever non-block vote. I’ll slip you up! I’ll put you in at 4!

Mr M.P. WHITELY: Good on you! Very good—I will look forward to that. I think my mum is going to vote for me as well, so that is two! Beautiful.

Dr A.D. Buti: What about your wife?

Mr M.P. WHITELY: She cannot vote; she is not yet an Australian citizen. She is getting around to it. She is Irish; she is doing it in Irish time. She has been living in Australia for 27 years and is about to get around to it shortly.
