Dr EVATT (Hunter) (Leader of the Opposition) . - I join in congratulating you, Mr. Speaker, upon your election to office. During your previous term of office, the Opposition was greatly impressed by your efficiency in the Chair and above all by the spirit of fairness and tolerance that you showed during all the debates. I mentioned that fact at the close of the last Parliament. Having regard to your fairness and your other qualities, the Opposition believes that the House has been fortunate to retain your services as Speaker. I congratulate you.
