Mr THORBY (Calare) (Deputy Leader of the Country party) . - The Leader of the Country party (Sir Earle Page) has already very fully expressed the views of the Country party on this subject. The Country party will accept the proposed amendments circulated by the Assistant Minister (Mr. Spender). They do not materially affect the original pronouncement made by the right honorable member for Cowper (Sir Earle Page) when Prime Minister, on behalf of the Government of the day, that Dame Enid Lyons and her children would be adequately provided for. I wish to make it quite clear that members of the Country party would not be prepared to support any proposal that would be tantamount to a repudiation of that promise.
