Mr SNEDDEN (Bruce) (Leader of the Opposition) - Mr Speaker, I congratulate Mr Scholes on his appointment by this House as Chairman of Committees. We did not propose any candidate against him for we believe that, until we see him performing in the Chair, there is no warrant on our part to depart from the practice that the majority Party should provide the Chairman of Committees. We remember, however, the performance of the honourable member for Corio in the Standing Orders Committee on which I had the honour to serve with him. I then formed a very real impression of the commitment he has to Parliament as an institution serving the Australian democracy and I look forward to the continuance in his position as Chairman of Committees of the same instinct he showed on the Standing Orders Committee. I wish him well for the future.
