Mr BAYLEY (Oxley) .- During the second reading, the Prime Minister (Mr. Scullin) stated that it was not his intention to bring about the abolition of the existing Public Accounts Committee until it had completed an inquiry upon which it is now engaged; but, if this bill goes through in its present form, it will necessitate a fresh election, and none of the present members of the committee may be chosen to sit upon it again. I suggest, therefore, that a new clause be inserted to provide that the act shall come into force upon a date to bo proclaimed.
