Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for External Affairs) [3.4]. - by leave - I move -

That thefollowing resolution be transmitted through His Excellency the Governor-General to His Majesty the King: - "We, the members of the Senate in the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia, on assembling for the first sitting of the Parliament since the lamented death of our late beloved sovereign King George V., express our profound sympathy in the great loss which your Majesty, Her Majesty Queen Mary, and the other members of the Royal Family have sustained."

It is with the deepest regret that I submit the motion. The sentiments which you, Sir, and Mr. Speaker conveyed to His Majesty the King in the message just read by the Clerk of the Senate need no amplification by me. I am sure, however, that every honorable senator endorses them.
