Senator Sir WILLIAM SPOONER (New South Wales) - I would like to crave the indulgence of the Senate very briefly to put on record the affection and respect which I have for the memory of the late Harrie Wade. I do this as some little acknowledgment of the great help and assistance he gave to me. I think that the trait in his character that I would like to stress is that whilst always remaining loyal and firm in his own opinions and his own views, he was always considerate and open and willing to listen to the views of his opponents. I think that is somewhat the same comment as Senator Kennelly made. ] do not remember the late Harrie Wade giving a discourteous answer at question time in this Senate. The other thing that I would like to touch upon, which was made so manifest to us all in his own inimitable, manly way, was the great affection and regard he had for his wife and the pride that he felt in his son. He was a good man who was a good influence in this Senate.

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