Mr REID (East Sydney) - I think that the Government in taking the course they have followed, and the Prime Minister by the remarks which he has made in submitting this motion, have both pursued a line of conduct which commends itself to the feelings of the House. I desire to add but a few words to the graceful references which the honorable gentleman has made. It can be well understood, Mr. Speaker, that we deeply feel the loss which we on this side of the House have sustained, in common, .as the Prime Minister has justly said, with the House generally, and the whole of the people of Australia. A more loyal friend and ally - and I think I shall command the concurrence of all honorable members opposite, when I say a more honorable opponent - than the late right honorable member never lived.
