Dr EVATT (Barton) (Leader of the Opposition) . - The Vice-President of the Executive Council (Sir Eric Harrison) is leaving an important post here to take up a more important post in which he will represent not only the Government of Australia, but also the people of Australia. The Prime Minister (Mr. Menzies) has spoken of the way in which the right honorable gentleman has represented the Government as the Leader of the House. I do not think there is any necessity for Opposition members to refer to that. He has been a stern taskmaster, but that is partly the duty of the Leader of the House. We all look to him in the position to which he is going - a great position - to represent all sections of the people of this country. In that position it will be even more important for him to do that than it is now. I wish him and his wife a happy tenure of office in the position of High Commissioner of Australia in the United Kingdom.
