The PRESIDENT - No doubt honourable senators will be aware of the circumstances which cause me to make this announcement. Yesterday afternoon there died a man who had served this Parliament for a long time and most honourably. I, refer to the late John Murphy. He joined the Joint House Department and therefore became a servant of the Parliament in 1944. He died yesterday afternoon, and so ended a long life. I have taken the necessary action to convey to his widow and his daughters the regrets of the Senate and the understanding and appreciation which exist among all honourable senators of the long service that he rendered to this Parliament.

Honourable Senators - Hear, hear!
