Mr SCULLIN (Yarra) (PrimeMinister) . - The point raised by the honorable member is sound. It was the intention of the Government that this legislation should come into operation forthwith, and, that being so, there was no need to insert a proclamation clause; but it would be a pity to interfere with the personnel of the Public Accounts Committee until it has finished with its present inquiry, which the chairman of the committee assures me will take the committee a few weeks only. I shall move to insert a new clause to provide that the act shall come into force upon a dale to be fixed by proclamation.
