Mr LYONS (Wilmot) (Prime Minister and Treasurer) . - My failure to notify the honorable member for West Sydney (Mr. Beasley) of my intention to introduce this measure to-night was an oversight for which I apologize. Of course, the Government cannot notify all members of variations in the order of business, but I recognize that the honorable member for West Sydney is the leader of a group of members, and I assure him that in future the same courtesy will be extended to him as to other leaders. The explanation which I shall give when moving the second reading of the bill, will, I hope, be sufficient. A clear statement on the legal and constitutional aspects of the measure will be issued, and later the AttorneyGeneral will endeavour to clarify any points upon which honorable members are still in doubt.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
