Mr ANDERSON (Hume) .- I am certain that I am voicing the opinion of those who support the bill when I congratulate the honorable member for Lang (Mr. Stewart) on his high-level approach in leading the opposition to it. I assure him that nothing that has been said in the unfortunate speech of the honorable member for Grayndler (Mr. Daly) will detract from the spirit that he has shown in this House.

I would also like to congratulate the Attorney-General on the way in which he conducted the debate. I think it is most unfair and grossly misleading to suggest that he did not carry this debate on the highest plane, particularly in regard to the Churches. I feel that all members of this House, exercising an entirely free vote, approached this important legislation with a view to making it the best for marriage in Australia.
