Mr CUNNINGHAM (GWYDIR, NEW SOUTH WALES) (Assistant Minister) . - I ask for leave to move the second reading of this bill.

Mr Gabb - I object.

Mr Latham - I suggest that leave be granted, that the Minister make his second-reading speech, and that the debate be then adjourned until this afternoon.

Mr Gabb - If we do that, the whole bill will be rushed through, as was done last night.

Mr Latham - I am, prepared to allow the Minister to move the second reading now, and to make up my mind concerning the bill after I have seen it. If I then want to oppose it, I shall do so; if not, I shall vote for it.
