Mr FOX (Henty) - As one who was privileged to serve in this Parliament with Sir Arthur Fadden and who had a very high regard for him and greatly respected him as, I know, he was respected by all who knew him, I should like to add my tribute to those which have been tendered by previous speakers. Sir Arthur was not only a great parliamentarian and Treasurer; he was also a very warm hearted person who numbered his friends in all walks of life and at all levels of society. I know that he was able to meet all these people on equal terms. He exuded good humour and had a fund of stories which was unequalled by anyone. As has been stated, Sir Arthur could not resist the temptation even on the occasion of his last speech in this Parliament to tell three of four stories. No doubt these are recorded in Hansard for posterity. This was typical of Sir Arthur Fadden. Australia is the poorer for his passing and I should like to extend my personal sympathy to Lady Fadden and the other members of bis family.
