Mr CALWELL (Melbourne) (Leader of the Opposition) . - by leave - I desire to associate every honorable member whom I have the honour to lead with what the Prime Minister (Mr. Menzies) has said about the future of this country, and about this Parliament, on this, the sixtieth anniversary of the first meeting of the Commonwealth Parliament, and the thirty-fourth anniversary of its first meeting in this, the National Capital. We all look forward with hope and expectation to a greater Australia, growing before our eyes. We all agree, of course, that the Australia of to-morrow will be even better, in the lifetime of our children, than the Australia we have known, and we hope that in the time of our grandchildren Canberra will equal Washington in importance, as the centre of a very great nation.
