Mr SALMON (Laanecoorie) - I apprehend that it is quite out of order for me to make any remarks at this stage, but I feel that perhaps I might be accused of a want of courtesy if I did not acknowledge the very kind things which you, sir, the Prime Minister, and the acting leader of the Opposition have been good enough to say. I desire to thank honorable members very sincerely for the. courtesy and consideration! with which they have always been good enough to treat me, and without which it would have been impossible for me to carry out my duties in a way which I could regard as satisfactory. I recognise that during the frying times through which we have passed some irritation has been caused, but I am very glad to believe that it has been of a purely temporary character. I have especially to thank the Temporary Chairmen of Committees for the valuable assistance they have so readily accorded me throughout the session. I re-echo the feelings of indebtedness which you, sir, have expressed towards the officers of the House, the Hansard staff, the messengers, and all concerned in the carrying on of our business. I desire also to join you in the expressions you have uttered with regard to the coming season.

Mr. MALONEY(Melbourne). - I might be allowed to say that I promised the Minister in charge of the Price and Bayly Bill that, so far as I was concerned, if action were taken on the initiative of the Executive to assist Lt.-Col. Bayly in his distress during the recess - and I understand that help to the extent of £300 could be afforded in this way - I should be willing to indorse such action at a later opportunity.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

House adjourned at 11. 21 p.m.
