Mr POLLARD (Lalor) - I join in supporting the motion moved by the Prime Minister regarding the late Honorable William Scully. It was my privilege during the war to be associated with the Honorable William Scully when he was Minister for Commerce and Agriculture. He had a profound knowledge of primary production in this country. Few men who have entered this Parliament have had as extensive a knowledge. He applied himself to the welfare of the primary producers of Australia during the war, but primarily to the welfare of the nation and making a contribution to the winning of the war. Bill Scully was a big man physically. He was a big man morally, and he was a big man spiritually. His memory will last long in the hearts of those who knew him. He was as straight as the timber from the district he represented. I join in this tribute to William Scully's memory.

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