Friday, 11 September 1942

The PRESIDENT (Senator the Hon J Cunningham (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I have been advised by His Excellency the Governor-General that the resolution passed by the Senate on the 2nd September, 1942, in connexion with the death of His Royal Highness the Duke of Kent has been forwarded by cable to His Majesty the King, who has replied as follows: -

Iand my family deeply appreciate the message of sympathy from members of the Senate in the Parliament of the Commonwealth of Australia on the death of my brother, the Duke of Kent, who, I know, was so much looking forward to the time when it would be possible for him to take up his duties as Governor-General. The kind sentiments expressed by the members of the Senate afford me much consolation in my sorrow.
