Mr WATSON (Bland) - On behalf of the members of the Labour Party I have great pleasure in supporting the motion. I have not had that experience of Parliamentary affairs which has fallen to the share of the mover and the seconder of the motion, but I have been sufficiently long in Parliament to be 'able to appreciate the advantage both to the public and to the Parliament of having as a Speaker a man of conspicuous fairness and ability such as Sir Frederick Holder, and I trust that he may long be available to exercise those powers which he so ably devoted to the discharge of the duties of his high office in the past Parliament.
