Mr BEASLEY (West Sydney) . - The notice provided for by this clause is extremely short. Whatever the rights or wrongs of this proposal may be, it is only fair that ample time should be given to the parties concerned. No doubt the Government has the numbers to pass the bill as drafted, but, in order to place on record our protest against this attempt to proceed with undue haste, we shall divide the committee. In its indecent haste to clutch the revenues of a defaulting State, the Government would not allow the party proceeded against a reasonable time to enter an appearance.
