Mr McEWEN (Murray) (Minister for Trade and Industry) - I desire to associate myself and my colleagues of the Australian Country Party with this motion in respect of the late Mr Edward Holloway or Ted Holloway as he was known to the House. I knew him well. I sat with him for many years in this House. In the days when we travelled by train between Melbourne and Canberra I sat with Ted Holloway for many hours and talked with him. He was a calm, quiet man. He was also a very wise and tolerant man. He was a very great conciliator. He did much in the conciliation of disputes outside any jurisdiction, such were his own personal qualities. I never met a single employer who did not have great respect for Ted Holloway or have complete confidence in his integrity and honesty and great respect for his capacity to achieve a settlement of something that was brewing up and perhaps would have become a serious dispute.

We have heard of his services in the Parliament and his great services to the Labor movement. He was a very notable Australian and a man with whom it was very easy to be friends. Anyone who had an association with Ted Holloway learned something. I pay my great respect to his memory.
