Thank you Mr Speaker. Firstly I would like to echo the Honourable Ian Hansens sentiments regarding the IT Department. Our thanks to the Team there who have moved on to different fields.
And I would also like to thank you Mr Speaker and the Clerk of the Assembly for the work that has been done with FITV over recent weeks and months in getting this meeting televised so it is a positive step and thanks very much to everybody thats been done for that.
Having been inspired by a recent article in the Penguin News I took an hour last weekend to write a 100 year vision of the Falkland Islands. I certainly wont be sharing it widely it was just a bit of fun and quite poorly written but it does make you think about the place, how it is structured and what life is like down here.
And the recently cancelled visit from Members of the UK Parliament I think we should stand up for and thank the UK Government for their unequivocal support for the Falkland Islands. And (thank) Parliamentarians for their support. And it is great to see the Falkland Islands Governments Representative here in the Chamber. I would like to thank her and her team in London for doing such excellent work you do in Parliament to ensure we have that broad cross-party support that we do have so thanks for that.
Mr Speaker, I support the Motion.
