Mr FENTON (Maribyrnong) (PostmasterGeneral) . - Apparently the Deputy Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Forde) did not choose to hear my interjection that the contracts referred to are those between the Government and Amalgamated "Wireless (Australasia) Limited. No party desires to violate an existing contract, but legal opinion having been received that the provisions of the bill might do so, the new clause is proposed to safeguard all existing rights. There is no ulterior motive behind this proposal.
