"I am very humbled to be voted in by Federal Parliament as the new Deputy Speaker," he said.

"Whilst I was previously on the Speakers Panel, this is an elevation of my duties and responsibilities in the House of Representatives Chamber.

"I look forward to carrying out my new role, and thank my fellow Members of Parliament for their nomination and support."
