Mr Les Johnson (HUGHES, NEW SOUTH WALES) -I rise simply to place on record the fact that in 1974 1 had the honour to lead a parliamentary delegation to Pakistan which was received by Mr Bhutto. I think it is appropriate for me to say on behalf of the members of that delegation that we were enormously impressed with the dignified bearing of this man, his demeanour, the hospitality that he extended to the parliamentary delegation and the very great interest and concern he expressed about our country. I am sure those of us who spent in excess of an hour with him on that occasion must treat the event of yesterday with the utmost significance and importance. We mourn his passing and sincerely hope that Pakistan will not suffer as a consequence.
