'Parliament belongs to the people' - Lindsay Tisch Valedictory

From The House, 3:00 pm on 11 August 2017

National MP Lindsay Tisch says he's had an interest in politics since his school days last century and after 18 years as an MP it's time to go.

Every retiring or resigning MP is given the opportunity to give a final speech to the House called a valedictory statement. 

Lindsay Tisch is one of 15 who've taken up that chance and shared his final thoughts with the House which you can hear in full below.
