Senator HARDY (New South Wales) - The members of the United Country party also wish to be associated with the motion. I was not personally acquainted with the deceased gentleman during his term in this Parliament, hut met him constantly during the. economic crisis in 1930-31 and following years, and say unhesitatingly that he was one of the best advocates for a re-adjustment of the conditions of the primary producers whom I have yet encountered. (His speeches were characterized by the utmost vigor, and he left a deep and lasting impression upon those with whom he came into contact, particularly throughout the country districts of Victoria. It is with regret that my colleagues and I note his passing.

Question resolved in the affirmative, honorable senators standing in their places.
