"LET US PRAY" RELIGION IN PARLIAMENT Sir Richard Butler Sceptical [Newspaper Article] — News — 27 July 1923
"LET US PRAY" RELIGION IN PARLIAMENT Sir Richard Butler Sceptical When Sir Richard Butler, Speaker of the Hiouse of Assembly, was asked this morning to express an opinion on prayer meetings for members of the House he looked surprised. Hie was told that since 1832 such meetings had becn held from time to time in the Commons, and that every Tuesday about a dozen members met in the room of the SCergent-.'t-Arms for free p!rayer, Bible reading, and a short exposition. The attendance was about one in fifty members. "This is news to me," said the Speaker. "To make recommendations on that score is not in my province. Personally. I don't think it would work in Adelaide. We might not be able to get enough members to attend to make it worth while. The men who profess the mo-t are not always the best. Anyhow. it is essentially a matter for the members themselves. If they want prayeri meetings there is nothing to prevent them having them." Sir Richard then wanted to Iknow why some members had ...

CONFERENCE CLOSED Home plots.& houses colm wth bk (REUTER'S.) SHKANGIAI-, July 26. The fact th'at at. yesterday's Russo Japanese conversati,;s a.nd discus sions regarding N ikolaevsk were abandoned and other questions, such as debts recognition and ,Saghalien, were not taeken up is regarded as fore shadowing an early conclusion of the preliminary pourparlers, after which the delegates are expected to draw up a memorandum on . the respective opinions for sibmission to the Govern ments.

GOVERNMENT'S POLIJY Views Of The Parties -4---~ "It is not what is contained in the Governor's Speech. but rather what has been left out," said Mr. F. F. Ward (secretary of the South Australian Iabor Party) this morning, comment ing on the Government's policy for the present sessicon. "This is the last session of this Par liament, and it looks as though Sir "ienry Barwell has plenty of window dressing but little stock in the shop. This policy deals only with domestic matters that ahy type of Government would necessarily have to handle. It would seem that the Cabinet, although a Conservative hody, has put some check on the Premier's extreme conser vative and reactionary ideas.
