Senator BYRNE (Queensland) - On behalf of the Australian Democratic Labor Party I join with the Leader of the Government in the Senate, and the Deputy

Leader of the Opposition in the Senate in extending our condolences to the widow and family of the late Senator Kendall. I had the pleasure of serving with Senator Kendall in this place for some years. As has been said, he was a quiet man who had 2 particular interests. At all times he projected and sustained them in this chamber. He had an abiding interest in the future of Papua New Guinea on which he was particularly well-informed and to which he directed his attention and the attention of the Senate on many occasions. By virtue of his love of the. sea and his association with it he was intensely interested in the maritime industry of Australia. In a field in which there is perhaps not enough knowledge and energy Senator Kendall always brought to deliberations on that matter his knowledge, experience and interest. He acted virtually as assistant Whip in this place for many years. He was a man of quiet dedication and high principles. He served his country with great distinction in the Navy in war and sustained that interest in peace. I feel that Senator Kendall's passing is the severing of one of those links which become more precious as the years go on. On behalf of the Australian Democratic Labor Party and for myself personally I convey to those who survive him our deepest sympathy.
