Mr SCULLIN (Yarra) .- I congratulate you, Mr. Speaker, upon once again being appointed Speaker of this House. You have already had one experience as Speaker, and your reappointment amounts to a vote of confidence in you by the members of this chamber. On behalf of honorable members on this side of the chamber, I say that you have carried out your duties with impartiality, showing no discrimination between the members of one party and another. That, I take it, is the highest tribute that can be paid to a Speaker. This unanimous choice of Parliament is a tribute to your fairness and ability. I assure you, on behalf of the members of the Opposition, that we shall assist you in every way we can to maintain the standards of Parliament.
