Thank you, John.
Thank you, Mr. Evans. On behalf of all the members of the committee and all three parties represented, we want to thank you very much for giving us your time.
I don't know if committee members realize, but it was 6:30 a.m. down under, and Mr. Evans agreed to join us today and share with us some of the expertise gleaned after 21 years of serving as the Clerk of the Australian Senate.
A witness to this committee from yesterday, Mr. Bob Marleau, sends his greetings, sir. When he learned that you were about to give testimony he was very pleased and very interested in that.
We're earnestly trying to make our system more understandable for members of Parliament so we can do our due diligence, and your input today has been very useful and very well appreciated.
Thank you for being with us, sir.
