Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE (Western Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) [10.36]. - I move -

That the House do now adjourn.

As honorable senators are aware, Sir Henry Barwell is about to resign his seat in the Senate with a view to taking upthe position of Agent-General for South Australia. Last week I asked him if he would he coming to Canberra before his departure for London. He promised to let me know if he could do so, and I am now in receipt of the following telegram from him: -

I regret exceedingly that owing to many important engagements here it is quite impossible for me to visit Canberra prior to de- parture. Will forward resignation to Presient in few days. With kindest regards and wishing farewell to yourself and fellow members in Senate.

I think I am expressing the feelings of honorable senators when I say that we all wish Senator Barwell every success and happiness in his new career, and that we hope he will be spared for many years, and eventually may return to Australia. Honorable Senators. - Hear, hear!
