Senator Daly, who is 38 years of age, is one of the representatives of South Australia. He was elected to the Senate at the general election in November, and this is his first experience in Parliamen tary life. Since Senator Needham se vered his association with the Federal Parliament on account of ill health, in March, Senator Daly has been deputy leader. He is a lawyer, and is a mem ber of the legal firm of Messrs. Denny and Daly, Adelaide. For some years Senator Daly has been one of the leaders of the Labor movement of Australia, and he has had considerable experience in industrial matters. Appreciation was expressed of the services of Senator Keedham to the Labor movement, and regret at his de feat at the last election and his hastened retirement from Parliamentary activities through ill health.
Senator J. J. Daly.
