Mr TUDOR (Yarra) . - I wish to ask the honorable member for Kalgoorlie whether he will accept an amendment of (he amendment which he has moved. I desire to strike out the words " by the investigations of a duly appointed scientific committee approved by the Parliament." In common with other honorable members, I am anxious that we should arrive at a decision upon the motion this afternoon. I realize the importance of the question, not only to those living in the back portions of Australia, but also to those living in the towns.


Mr McLean - Would it not be better that the Government should take the responsibility rather than that Parliament should do so?


Mr TUDOR - I am quite prepared to accept my share of the responsibility rather than throw the whole of the responsibility upon the Government. I move -

That the amendment be amended by leaving out the words by the investigations of a duly appointed scientific committee approved by the Parliament."


Mr Frazer - I am prepared to accept that amendment.
