' In the House of Assembly Sir Henry | Parkes made an explanation m respect to the recent split m the Cabinet. He admitted that it was rash and undignified for him to have made an exposition re Mr McMillan m such a public way as he did. Mr McMillan stated that the only reason he had m resigning was that the Premier had made a statement to the Press which ought to have been made to him privately.
