MR. J. W. LOWTHER (Cumberland, Penrith)
Can the Government give us any information with regard to the very alarming telegrams from Now South Wales?
§ MR. SYDNEY BUXTON
I deeply regret to say that Sir Robert Duff died yesterday from the effects of an operation rendered necessary by the state of his health. His lamented death is a very great loss to the public service; and, to everyone who knew him in this House and outside, his loss will be the subject of very great regret indeed.
