Senator GARDINER (NEW SOUTH WALES) - In making the statement in the Senate on 17th July, which gave a personal affront to Colonel Ryrie, I was incensed at the Hansard report of his speech of the 5th July, whichI consideredcontained a reflection on my personal honour. As members of my party Have assured me that Colonel Ryrie did not intend to reflect upon my personal honour, in these circumstances I unhesitatingly withdraw my offensive expression towards him.

Honorable Senators. - Hear, hear !
