Mr CURTIN (Fremantle) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I second the motion with very deep regret, which is shared, I am sure, by the whole House, but more particularly by those members of it who were contemporaries of the late Mr. Hill. The deceased member was a Minister of State when I entered this Parliament, and I recall many experiences of his consideration and courtesy. As I came into closer association with him I learned to admire and respect his manly character and to appreciate the very high standard of public duty which he had set himself. I am quite confident that no section of this Parliament entertained for the late Mr. Hill anything but the very greatest degree of affection. I tender to his family my sincere personal sympathy, and associate all the members of the Labour party with the remarks of the Prime Minister (Mr. Menzies).
