Dr MALONEY - I regret to find that in my speech of this morning I attributed blame to a man who should rather have received praise - I refer to Mr. Justice Rich. Throughout my life it has been my custom, when I have made a mistake or wrongly accused anybody, to acknowledge my error promptly and wholeheartedly. I do so now, I regret that I included the name of Mr. Justice Rich in my strictures. I am sure that that gentleman, out of the greatness of his qualities, will accept my apology.

I intend at an early date, when the time is opportune, to ask the Government to provide full information so that the people of Australia may know the names of those who should receive commendation, together with the names of those who should receive condemnation.
