Senator HOARE (South Australia) . - It is with some pleasure that I congratulate Senator Glasgow upon his appointment to the Ministry, and also with some regret, because by his appointment South Australia has lost a Minister who was always courteous and obliging. Whenever I have approached Senator Wilson for information, he has always gone to a great deal of trouble to get it for me. However, South Australia's loss is Queensland's gain.

Senator McHugh - The Government thinks that it could not secure a capable Minister from the ranks of the South Australian members of this Parliament.

Senator HOARE - I should not say that, because we have some very capable men representing South Australia, and I am disappointed that one of them has not been chosen. With all due respect to Senator Glasgow, I think that a mistake has been made, and that the Government should have divided the portfolios as far as possible among the States. However, I congratulate the honorable senator upon his appointment, while, at the same time, I regret that we are losing the services of Senator Wilson.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
