Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) . - It is with feelings of the deepest sorrow that I rise to second the motion. Closely associated as I was with the late Honorable James Page for many years in our party, and frequently com ing in close contact with him, I fully appreciated his largeness of heart, his earnest and sincere nature, and his absolute unselfishness. His efforts on behalf of the people he represented were without limit, and it might be said that he was brought to a comparatively early grave by the manner in which he threw himself into his" duties as a public representative. I associate myself with all that the Mininister for Repatriation (Senator E. D. Millen) has said in submitting the motion. I trust that it will be consoling to the members of the late Mr. Page's family to know that the Senate, composed of representatives of all parties, sincerely regrets the passing away from us of one who so worthily represented in the Australian Parliament the sentiments of the Australian people.

Question resolved in the affirmative, honorable senators standing in their places.

Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - I am certain that I express the wish of honorable senators if I request that you, Mr. President,will convey the resolution passed by the Senate to the members of the late Mr. Page's family.
