Mr McEWEN (Murray) (Minister for Trade and Industry) - I would like to associate my colleagues of the Australian Country Party with the references which have been made by the Prime Minister (Mr Gorton) and the Leader of the Opposition (Mr Whitlam) to the late Mr Joshua and to join in extending the sympathy of my Country Party colleagues to his widow and to the members of the family. I, with others who have spoken, remember Mr Joshua as a man greatly respected in the Parliament. Those of us who were here remember the tempestuous days, as the Leader of the Opposition described them. I do not think any of us doubted the profound genuineness with which Mr Joshua held his convictions and took his stand. Whatever one's view may have been on the issues, this could have done nothing but enhance the respect in which Mr Joshua was held as a person. It is a matter of deep regret to myself and my Country Party colleagues that there should be this sad occasion of referring to his death.
