Senator COLLINGS (Queensland) . - On behalf of the Opposition in this chamber, I second the motion. It is unnecessary to add to the words of the Leader of the Senate. We very sincerely endorse the hope expressed by him that His Majesty the King and his advisers will be able to steer, not only the Empire, but also the other nations involved, through the darkness which at present seems almost impenetrable. We are encouraged to believe that that may happen as a result of King Edward VIII.'s personal capacity to understand the problems of his people, and his desire which on more than one occasion before his accession to the throne he openly expressed, that the various difficulties which beset the world may be overcome. The members of the Opposition heartily support the motion.
