Senator CHANEY (Leader of the Opposition) —by leave-I join the Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Button) in his comments and indeed you in yours, Mr President, I am somewhat nonplussed as the Leader of the Government stole my joke.

Senator CHANEY —I am so overcome with emotion at Mr Chapman's leaving that I have put my foot in it. I wish Mr Chapman well in his retirement, which I understand he is undertaking most reluctantly. I am sure that many of the listeners to these broadcasts will wish that some of us were retiring and not Mr Chapman.
