Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (Western Australia) (Leader of the Australian Country Party in the Senate) - I wish to associate the senators of the Australian Country Party with this motion of condolence and to support the tributes made by the Leader of the Government in the Senate and Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson who spoke on behalf of the Opposition. Sir Eric Harrison had retired from the Parliament before I came to the Senate, but I did not have to work with him to know him and to admire his many qualities. From a working community background and with very little education he graduated from the ranks to become one of Australia's most important men and certainly one of the most respected. He possessed unquestionable integrity and loyalty. He was a tenacious worker. Throughout his many years of unsparing service to this country he combined those attributes with great charm and friendliness and an unflagging sense of humour. My colleagues and I extend deep sympathy to his widow and family.
