Senator HERBERT HAYS (Tasmania) - It is with regret that I rise to support this motion. It was my great pleasure and privilege to be associated with the deceased gentleman for many years and to share with him the representation of Tasmania in this chamber. In his own State, as elsewhere in Australia, our former colleague waa held in the highest esteem. Every honorable senator who knew the deceased gentleman will look back with pleasure on his association with him. Ex-Senator Millen was a man of outstanding ability, who made many valuable contributions to the debates in this chamber. He was in failing health for

Borne time, and although in the later years in which he represented Tasmania in this chamber, he found his parliamentary duties onerous, he continued to occupy his accustomed place. He was always actively interested in the work of the Senate and was a most worthy representative of the people, not only of Tasmania, but also of the Commonwealth. I join with other honorable senators in expressing, on behalf of the Tasmanian people, appreciation of the sterling worth of the late ex-senator, and in extending sincere sympathy to his widow and family.
