i In the Legislative Assembly, Sir Henry Parkes moved that the federation resolutions passed at the Melbourne Conference be agreed to, He explained that it was necessary that the delegates-chosen to represent New South Wales at the next Federation Conference should not be violently opposed to federation proposals, and that was the reason Mr G. R. Dibbs, member for Murrumbidgee, had not been included in the list. Sir H. Parkes assured the Opposition that Mr Dibbs had not been omitted because, of any personal or political feeling. The motion was adjourned for a week to consider Sir H. Parkes' speech.
