FUNERAL FOR SENATOR

McLeay, who died in Adelaide today, will be held in Adelaide on

for a State Funeral are being discussed with the McLeay family by
a representative of the Prime Minister's Department, who flew to

will be accompanied by five or six other Ministers, including the
Minister for Defence (Sir Philip McBride). Efforts are being made
to arrange for at least one special plane to fly to Adelaide on
Friday morning with members from all parties. Senator O'Flaherty
and Mr Makin have been chosen to represent the Federal Labor Opposition
and its leader (Dr Evatt) at the funeral.
today the Attorney General (Senator Spicer) was sworn in as Minister
for Shipping and Transport. In the House of Representatives and
the Senate today emotional tributes were paid to Senator McLeay
and both Houses later adjourned as a mark of respect.
announced the death of Senator McLeay to a hushed house. "I
have never known a man of such hardy spirit, of more infinite good
nature," he said. "He could take all the knocks and arguments
- either in Cabinet room or on the floor of the Senate - and always
remain infinitely good-tempered leaving no wounds on his own soul,
and certainly none on the souls of others. George McLeay was one
of those rare men who enjoy the affection of political friend and
foe alike." "I, certainly have never heard anybody in
this House or elsewhere say about him anything that was harsh, uncharitable
or unjust. He could not have made such a remark himself, for he
was incapable of being harsh, uncharitable or unjust." Mr Menzies
was close to tears as he read out the condolence motion.
of the opposition (Dr Evatt) said Senator McLeay was the soul of
geniality and good friendship. "I think what struck us all
was his simplicity, humanity and kindness, and the absence of guile
from his disposition," said Dr Evatt. The Deputy Leader of
the Country Party (Mr McEwen) said Senator McLeay attracted and
held the affection of all with whom he came in contact. In the Senate,
the Leader of the Government (Senator O'Sullivan) said that during
Senator McLeay's long and distinguished public service, it could
truly be said that he never made an enemy. "We who have served
with him in Cabinet have lost not only a loyal and devoted colleague,
but also a very good friend," he added.
of the Opposition in the Senate (Senator McKennan) said Senator
McLeay fought hard but fairly for all those things in which he believed.
"He could strike a blow without malice and could take one in
return without the slightest resentment," he added.
Critchley (Lab., SA) said Senator McLeay was one that the Senate
would not easily forget.
Mattner (Lib., SA) said Senator McLeay's outstanding traits were
courage and character.
McBride said tonight that Senator McLeay had been a kind man and
a devoted friend, strong in his beliefs and resolute to do those
things he had thought right. "His jovial and happy nature will
be missed in Canberra."
(Mr Playford) said in Adelaide yesterday, "Senator McLeay was
a great South Australian and this State received outstanding service
from him. He was energetic, forthright and missed no opportunity
in furthering the interests of this State. Even his political opponents
sincerely respected his views and his passing will be deeply mourned
by his wide circle of friends."
President of the Liberal and Country League (Mr Hartley Cadd) said
Senator McLeay's work had been outstanding and his passing was a
McLeay died in his own State while still holding the Federal Office
to which he had given years of vigorous and outstanding service
to Australia and the strain of which, it is natural to suppose,
shortened his life. There could be no better tribute to him than
the moving scenes that occurred both in the House of Representatives
and in the Senate when the news of his death was announced. It was
a tribute not only to an able and conscientious Minister, but to
an eminently likeable colleague.
he was a man of very strong conviction - there was never any doubt
as to where he stood on issues that divided parties - Senator McLeay
exuded friendliness. He had friends everywhere and in all walks
never, perhaps been a more popular South Australian in the Senate,
nor certainly one who was so jealous of the interests of this State.
In his long political career he set a high standard both of service
and achievement, and he leaves a place it will be difficult to fill.
