Sir ARTHUR FADDEN (McPhersonTreasurer) - by leave - I have very much pleasure in supporting the remarks that you have just made, Mr. Speaker, regarding Mr. Campbell, the services that he has rendered and his imminent retirement. One does this, of course, with mixed feelings. From any viewpoint, 34 years is a long time to have served in one position. In addition to the information that you have given us regarding Mr. Campbell's record, Mr. Speaker, I should like to point out to the House - and it is appropriate for me to do so - that during his period of service with the Parliament he has seen fourteen different Parliaments and has served under nine Prime Ministers and nine Speakers. He has served not only the House of Representatives but also the Senate and the various committees of the Parliament that have been set up from time to time. I think we all must appreciate that this is a very fine record, and one of which Mr. Campbell can be justly proud. The fact that he has seen fourteen different Parliaments come and go is evidence in itself of the number of good speeches for which Mr. Campbell must have been responsible in his capacity as official " Hansard " reporter. Mr. Campbell carries with him the appreciation and the good wishes of honorable members on this side of the House and, I am sure, of all members of the Parliament, not only those who are here but also those who have been here and have benefited from Mr. Campbell's splendid co-operation and other very fine characteristics. We extend to him, and to Mrs.

Campbell and their family, our best wishes that he will enjoy long life and a pleasurable time in his well-earned retirement.
