I acknowledge and thank Senator Chris Back for his eight years of dedicated service representing the people of Western Australia.

Senator Back was an indefatigable advocate for the West, particularly ensuring the agricultural, agribusiness and resources sectors had a strong voice in the senate. I thank him for his tireless committee work and representation of rural and regional Australia.

Members and senators are volunteers to parliament while their families are conscripts. Senator Back’s decision to put his family first should be commended.

I wish Senator Back and his family the very best for the future.
