Senator WALKER (New South Wales) . - I suppose that .if there is one member of the Committee who is looked upon as a specialist upon land matters, it is Senator Millen, who has spent years practically in gaining his experience. I, for one, intend to support him. His arguments seem to me so clear, and at the same time to have so little effect on certain honorable senators opposite, that I am reminded of an incident I read in Bodwell's Life of Johnson. On one occasion, Johnson gave what he thought to be a very good reason, . and Boswell remarked, " I cannot follow you, 'sir. I do not 'exactly see where it comes in." Johnson replied, " I have given a reason. It is not for me to find you with comprehension." It seems to me that Senator Millen has done his part.
