Senator CHANEY (Leader of the Opposition) —On behalf of the Opposition, I support the motion of condolence which has been moved by the Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Button). Former Senator Fitzgerald had a very brief part of his term to serve when I became a member of this place and he was never personally known to me, but I have spoken to a number of honourable senators who have all testified to his kindness and decency and to the contribution which he made in the Senate. The Opposition joins the Leader of the Government and Government senators in extending sympathy to his family at this very unhappy time.
