Mr SCULLIN (Yarra) . - I desire to join in the congratulations that are offered to you this morning, sir, on your being elected to the very high and honorable position of Speaker of this Parliament. On behalf of the members of the party that I have the pleasure and the honour to lead, I offer you their support and co-operation in carrying out the Standing Orders, and in upholding the best traditions of our National Parliament. I have not the slightest doubt that you will be both fair and unbiased. Those of us who have been privileged to know you for a number of years are aware that you possess the qualities of impartiality and fairmindedness that go so far towards achieving the success of a Speaker. I hope further that, while Speaker, you may witness a change in the conditions of this country that will usher in brighter prospects for the whole of our people.
