Mr BEASLEY (West Sydney) . - Is it, permissible, after the bill has been debated, and the second reading carried, for a portion of it to be withdrawn at the request of the Prime Minister, and inserted in a separate bill? It may be possible, if a new measure is to be introduced embodying a portion of the present bill, to take away from honorable members the right to discuss the new bill fully. I desire that the new bill shall go through the same procedure as the present bill has gone through.

Mr Lyons - That is the intention of the Government.

Mr Hughes - The honorable member may discuss it fully when it comes before the House.

Mr BEASLEY - I have been tricked before. The right honorable member for North Sydney (Mr. Hughes) may be conversant with what has been arranged in the party rooms, but I have not the benefit of that knowledge. The Prime Minister has not indicated the Government's intentions, and I object to the proposed procedure.
