Mr SPEAKER: I regret to inform the House of the death on 25 March 2012 of the Hon Ralph Kerr Maxwell MBE, who represented the electorate of Waitakere from 1978 to 1987 and the electorate of Titirangi from 1987 to 1990. In 1990 he was the Associate Minister of Agriculture and the Associate Minister of External Relations and Trade. I desire on behalf of this House to express our sense of the loss we have sustained and our sympathy with the relatives of the late former member. I now ask members to stand with me and observe a period of silence as a mark of respect for his memory.

  • Honourable members stood as a mark of respect.
