In Her Majesty's name, Her Honour the Lieutenant-Governor assents to these Bills, enacting the same and ordering them to be enrolled.

May It Please Your Honour:

The Legislative Assembly having devoted itself with unremitting diligence to the consideration of the several subjects referred to in this speech Her Honour the Lieutenant-Governor was pleased to deliver at the opening of the session, and to other matters of interest to the people of the province, humbly begs to present for your Honour's acceptance a Bill intituled Appropriations Act 2001-2002.

It is the Queen's wish. La reine le veut.

To this Bill, Her Honour's assent was announced by the Clerk of the Legislative Assembly in the following words:

Her Honour thanks Her Majesty's loyal and dutiful subjects, accepts their benevolence and assents to this Bill.

Her Honour was pleased to close the session with the following speech:

Mr. Speaker, Mr. Premier, honourable Leader of the Opposition, honourable Leader of the New Democratic Party, Members of the Legislative Assembly.

I want to thank you in the name of Her Majesty the Queen for your devotion and for your very hard and long work on behalf of the people of New Brunswick.

I wish to thank each of you for your devotion to New Brunswickers.

Each year, I have followed your work with great interest, and I know the kind of time you have put inthe long hours. I really appreciate what you do for this province and for all the people.

Before wishing you a good summer, I want to say, Mr. Education Minister, that over the past month, I have had the great privilege of traveling this province to visit many of our schools. I have seen the heritage projects, the foires de patrimoine, and I think it is important for all of us to realize that our children today are learning so much about our heritage, our history, our traditions.

I am so proud of our students.

I hope that you, too, will have a chance to see some of these projects. A presentation of these projects is now being installed on the second floor of Old Government House, to coincide with the river conference, so if you haven't had a chance to see them around the provinceand I expect most of you have been too busyI would invite you to come to Old Government House to see a selection of them there.

I wish you a wonderful summer with the people in your ridings.

But especially with your family members.

I especially wish you quality family time. To Trevor Holder and Jody Carr . . . I very often get them confused, but I didn't do it today. With these young politicians, I sometimes get confused between the ones elsewhere in the province. It is a wonderful thing to know that they will be entering into marriage over the summer. Of course, I wish you happiness. I guess I could add, "May all your problems be little ones", but that will certainly not happen. As politicians, you can expect big problems. I hope they are just little ones in your families.

Thank you very much. I look forward to seeing you back in the fall.

The Clerk of the Legislative Assembly, Loredana Catalli Sonier, then said:

It is Her Honour's will and pleasure that this Legislative Assembly be prorogued until Tuesday, the tenth day of July next, and this Legislative Assembly is accordingly prorogued until Tuesday, the tenth day of July next.

The House prorogued at 10.42 o'clock a.m.
