Mr FADDEN (Darling DownsLeader of the Opposition) - by leave - I endorse the sentiments which the Prime Minister has just expressed. Like him, I hope that, before Parliament is called together again, the dark clouds of war will have passed away, and that commonsense, understanding, and national goodwill will prevail. I hope that we shall continue to enjoy the privilege of free and constitutional government, and that we shall retain the freedom which is symbolized by the Union Jack. I join with the Prime Minister in wishing to yourself, Mr. Speaker, and to the staff of the Parliament, the compliments of the season, and I trust that our Christmas will be as merry as the circumstances permit.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
