Mr McDONALD (Kennedy) - I move -

That the words " Laanecoorie, Mr. Charles Carty Salmon," be omitted, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the words " Boothby,.Mr. Egerton LeeBatchelor."

The honorable member whom I propose shall fill the position, of Chairman of Committees is well known to this House. He has also had a long political career, has been a member of a State Ministry, and has served with great credit to his party and to himself in that capacity. I feel satisfied that he possesses the tact and ability which are requisite in one who undertakes the responsible duties of Chairman of Committees. The honorable member has acted in the capacity of Deputy Chairman for the last three years, and I believe that most honorable members will agree with me that he has invariably discharged the duties of that position with credit to himself and with honour to the House.
