Senator FOLL (Queensland) (Minister for the Interior) . - I, too, desire to be associated with the motion. The late Brigadier-General Bolton was elected to the Senate on the same day that I was elected, in 1917. I well remember the fight that he always put up in this chamber on behalf of returned soldiers, particularly when the late Senator E. D. Millen was piloting through this chamber the first Australian Soldiers' Repatriation Bill. That measure was improved in many ways as the result of suggestions made by ex-Senator Bolton. The sympathy of all honorable senators goes out to his widow and to the members of his family in their great loss.

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