I am sure that all my right hon. and hon. Friends on this side will join in what the Prime Minister has said, particularly those of us who served in this House with the late Mr. Clynes. I know that his memory, to all of us, is one of great kindliness and friendliness. My own outstanding impression of him, as a young Member, was his modesty and complete sincerity as a Minister. As the Prime Minister has said, we all feel that we have lost a real friend and I would ask to be associated with the message to his family.
