Senator GIBSON (Victoria) .- I associate myself with the statements made by the Leader of the Senate (Senator Pearce) . The late Mr. J owett was elected to the House of Representatives seventeen years ago, and remained a member until his electorate was abolished. He and I were for a time the only members of the Country party in this Parliament. He always took a great interest in political and economic matters, and actually addressed meetings on those subjects until about a week before he died. He probably was better known in pastoral and wool circles than any other man in Australia. He was a pioneer of the pastoral industry, and controlled and developed immense properties throughout Australia, many of them in remote districts. My sympathy is extended to his family and others who mourn his death.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
