Senator WATSON(12.24 p.m.) —by leave—In my haste to keep my earlier remarks brief, I omitted to mention another outgoing member of the committee who acted as deputy chair for quite a long time and relinquished that position to go to higher duties. Senator Sue West was a very constructive committee member who was meticulous in representing her party and her ideals. She took great interest in the poorer sections of the community, whom she had a particular empathy with, in terms of the need to get them adequate retirement benefits. So I would like to thank Sue West as well as Bruce Childs and acknowledge their contributions.

Motion, as amended, agreed to.
