Senator COLLINGS (QUEENSLAND) -. I second the motion. , I had not the privilege of personal acquaintance with the late Honorable Bruce Smith, but I remember well many of his activities, especially those to which the Leader of the Senate (Senator Pearce) has referred. In the stormy times to which reference has been made one could always be sure of the attitude of the late honorable gentleman. He expressed himself definitely and clearly regardless of the opinions of others. Gentlemen, such as he, who render public service in the Parliaments of Australia are entitled to our respect, both while they are with us and after they have departed from our midst. The members of the Opposition desire to be associated with the motion, particularly that part of it which expresses sympathy with the family of the late honorable gentleman.
