Mr J H CATTS (Cook) (3:10 AM) .I had intended to move for the insertion of a similar clause, as notified in my speech on the second reading of the Bill, and I shall support that submitted by the honorable member. I sat in this Parliament in 1907, and know what happened then. Honorable members stood up and declared that they did not intend to take the increase in salary, but waited until after the next election, and then they took the whole ' ' bang ' ' lot. Men who are so mean and paltry as that have no right to profit by it. There is no need to take up the time of the Committee by debating the new clause. I intend to support it.
