Mr STOKES (Maribyrnong) - Bob Sherrington was a man of the people. He was a straight shooter and a warm and sincere friend. I shall miss him. Bob, his wife and his family knew in August last, as I did, that the chances were that he had but six months to live. We have been told with what courage he faced what is one of the greatest loads a human can be called upon to bear - the knowledge of approaching death. His death represents a great loss, not only to Queensland and to this Parliament but also to the many friends he made in the south. I extend my sympathy to Mrs. Sherrington and her family.

Question resolved in the affirmative, honorable members standing in their places.
