Senator WITHERS (Western AustraliaLeader of the Opposition) - We on this side of the chamber would like to be associated with the remarks of the Leader of the Government in the Senate (Senator Murphy) because Dugald Munro, as the Liberal member for Eden-Monaro from 1966 to 1969, worked tirelessly for his electorate. A grazier, he was very active in trying to get a better deal for the country man. He believed strongly that politicians should be aware, from personal observations, of what was going on in the country. He believed that they should not be cloistered in an ivory tower, passing legislation on important issues without any personal experience of those matters. For that reason he was zealous in his belief that politicians should work hard inside and outside the House. His untimely and tragic death at the age of 43 years was a sad loss to the community.
