Mr DEPUTY SPEAKER (Hon J M Chanter - Before putting the motion I should like to add a few words as a tribute of sorrow on my own behalf and on behalf of the staff of this Parliament at the great loss we have sustained in the death of the honorable member for Maranoa. I had known him ever since he became a member of this House. I had been associated with him politically in many ways and had always found him, as has been said by honorable members to-day, a man of most generous impulses, and with a big heart. It is only two days since he came to me in this chamber, and with tears in his voice offered me his sincerest sympathy in the bereavement which' I have recently suffered. My heart went out to him more than ever then, as it had on other occasions when he tendered me his sympathy in formerbereavements. I say, in all sincerity, that no ona deplores his low more than I do, and I hope that bis relatives may. be given the strength to bear the great load of sorrow which the Almighty has placed upon thom*

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

Motion (by Sir Joseph Cook) agreed to-

That Mr. Deputy Speaker be requested to transmit to the relatives the foregoing resolution and a copy of the speeches < delivered thereon.

House adjourned at 12.3 p.m.
