Mr McEWEN (Murray) (Minister for Trade) . - As the Leader of the Australian Country Party I should like to be permitted by the House to express, on behalf of that party, our very best wishes to the honorable member for Brisbane, who has given to this Parliament and this country a most distinguished life of service. It is quite remarkable to recall that we are speaking of a gentleman who served with the Australian forces in the Boer War, and from that commencement of service to his country has gone on to give distinguished service in the Parliament as a Minister as well as a private member, and always as a credit to this House. The Australian Country Party wishes the honorable member for Brisbane and his wife the best of health and enjoyment during the period of his retirement.
