Senator BARNES (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - I associate myself with the remarks of the Deputy Leader of the Opposition (Senator Glasgow). I should have mentioned this matter myself had it not been done by an honorable senator on the other side. I am sure that every honorable senator feels deeply the bereavement suffered by Senator Lynch. His wife had had a long and painful illness, and the senator, I have no doubt, went through a period of great trial and worry. As soon as I saw the report of her death in the press, I made haste to express my personal regret to the honorable senator, and to sympathize with him and his family in their bereavement. I am now glad to avail myself of the opportunity of doing the same thing here in the Senate.

The PRESIDENT (Senator the Hon. W. Kingsmill) . - I desire to associate myself with the sentiments of those honorable senators who have expressed their sympathy with Senator Lynch in his bereavement. I assure honorable senators that their expressions of regret will be conveyed to Senator Lynch and his family.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
