Mr HOWARD (Prime Minister) (3:26 PM) —Mr Speaker, may I also add that, for reasons that honourable members would know, I was not present in the House yesterday during the condolence motion moved in relation to the death of Sir Donald Bradman. I have already expressed my deep feelings about that and about that man's contribution to Australia. I will not repeat them here. Suffice it to say that I want to be associated in every way with the sentiments expressed on behalf of the government by the Acting Prime Minister and on behalf of the Australian Labor Party by the Leader of the Opposition. I think the terms of the motion very poignantly expressed the very deep feelings of a grateful nation for such a wonderful life.

Honourable members—Hear, hear!
