I start with a special acknowledgement of emergency services personnel: police, fire and rescue and paramedics, along with the doctors and nurses in our local hospitals. Thank you. Thank you for everything you have done and thank you in advance for everything you will do. All of you hold a special place in our hearts, as members of Parliament. Many of you will be working over the Christmas and New Year period. I pay special respect and tribute to our police, fire and rescue, paramedics and nurses.
