I mua te whakaaetanga ko Trevor Mallard tēra ka tū ki te tūnga.

Ko tā Te Pirimia a Jacinda Ardern "This parliamentary term is full of firsts and you are no exception as a MAMIL a Middle Aged Man In Lycra. I know that you love cycling and I know that you love whisky; you're cycling experience will help you I'm sure as Speaker, you know how to keep the pace high, how to use the brakes sparingly and how to never back pedal" 

Ko tāna inaenaei he ringa whakatau kia noho ko te kupu anake te whiu ki paremata.

Ko tā te Kaiarahi o Nahinara a Bill English "It will be interesting to see how you reflect on the robustness of your own debating and procedural style in this house.

"I would have to say over that time you would certainly be in the top ten greatest hits of parliamentary performers in a whole lot of different ways."

Ka tuwhera Te Whare Paremata ki te motu hei āpōpō.
