The PRESIDENT - Before putting the question, I wish to thank honorable senators for the consideration and courtesy which they have extended to me during my occupancy of the chair. I expected that they would extend that 'consideration and courtesy to me - as I stated when I was elected - and I have not been disappointed. On behalf of the officers who sit at the table, I would like to say that, though they have been .handicapped by the absence, through illness, of the Clerk, and although the session has been a very , strenuous one, they have discharged their duties in a way that, I think, has given general satisfaction. As far as the other officers of the Chamber are concerned, I do not think that any honorable senator - and I speak for myself as well - has had any cause for complaint. I wish honorable senators the compliments of the approaching festive season, and hope that we shall meet again next session in the best of health, and fit to proceed with business.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
