Mr BEASLEY (West Sydney) . -Onbehalf of my colleagues in the Labour party of New South Wales and myself, I extend to you, Mr. Speaker, congratulations on your elevation to your important position. I have known you only since my advent to this Parliament in 1928, but I have always had the highest respect for you, because of the impartial way in which you have placed your views before the members of this House. Although I entirely disagree with the political opinions of the party with which you are associated, I cannot help recognizing your sincerity and impartiality in endeavouring to arrive at decisions on matters concerning the welfare of the people you represent. My party will render 'all the assistance it can possibly give you in carrying out your important duties, and if you follow the course that you have pursued in the past, I have no doubt that at the end of your term we shall be in a position to congratulate you upon the manner in which you have discharged the functions of your high office.
