Senator LECKIE (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) . - Although, as the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Collings) has said, not any members of the present Opposition were associated with the late James Arthur Boyd when he was a member of the House of Representatives, I knew him for many years when I too was a member of that chamber. The late Mr. Boyd was indeed, as Senator Gibson has Raid, a man of sterling character, forthright and courageous in all that he undertook. To the last he led a full life and enjoyed the company of his friends. A rugged Scot, he was loyal, not only to Scotland, the land of his birth, but also to Australia, the land of his adoption. I regard his passing as a great personal loss. He will be sadly missed in Victoria where he was an outstanding personality.

Question resolved in the affirmative, honorable senators standing in their places.
