Senator UPPILL (South Australia) . - by leave - I move -

That leave of absence for one month be granted to Senator E. B. Johnston on account of ill health.

I have received a letter from Senator Johnston, and also the following certificate from Dr. Basil Williams, of Macquarie-street, Sydney, which Senator Johnston desires me to read to the Senate -

This is to certify that SenatorE. B. Johnston is suffering from acute bronchitis and is advised to rest for a month completely, and is unfit to attend parliamentary duties for this period.

I was travelling with Senator Johnston in Tasmania recently in connexion with the work of the Joint Committee on Rural Industries when he was taken rather seriously ill through a bronchial cold.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
