Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) . - My honorable friends opposite are arguing this matter in a very sinister way. It seems to me to be a very sinister proposal.

Mr Ryan - The right honorable gentleman supported a similar proposal in 1904.

Sir JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Treasurer) - Perhaps I did; but the honorable member should go through the whole of the records, and ascertain what was said in regard to it. Is the honorable member taking this action to-day for a similar reason? If he is, I congratulate him on his move.

Mr J H Catts - The Treasurer now says that he did not mean it.
