Senator CRAWFORD (QueenslandHonorary Minister) . - The effect of the amendment moved by the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Needham), would be to introduce an altogether new principle. In the Canned Fruits Export Bill provision is made that the votes shall be according to the output of the different factories.

Senator Needham - That is a different proposition.

Senator CRAWFORD - I do not think so. Moreover, this provision in regard to the voting power is in accordance with the unanimous request of the Broome and Thursday Island organizations. It is reasonable to assume that the persons closely associated with the business know the best method to adopt.
