Senator NEEDHAM (Western Australia) . - With very great pleasure I second the motion expressing our thanks for, and appreciation of, the splendid gift we have received from the Government of Canada. We shall value the chair not only for its intrinsic worth and its excellent workmanship, but also because it symbolizes the ties that exist between the people of this country and those of the sister Dominion of Canada. We appreciate the kindly thought that prompted the gift, which will be the companion of the chair presented to another place by the British Parliament. Its presence in this chamber will, I feel sure, constantly remind us of the bond that now exists between this country and Canada, and strengthen the friendship that exists between the people of the two Dominions. On behalf of honorable senators on your left, Mr. President, I support the motion moved by the Acting Leader of the Senate.

Question unanimously resolved in the affirmative.
