Mr SCULLIN (Yarra) (2:32 AM)

This new clause clearly indicates that the Government is aware that it is not proceeding along proper lines. I am not certain that the wording " shall continue in operation for a period of two years " is wise. Does that mean that the measure shall not be reviewed before the expiration of two years?


Mr SCULLIN - I do not object to the operation of the measure being limited to two years, but I point out that it is strange that, despite the assurance of the Assistant Treasurer (Mr. Bruce), that the legislation would remain in existence for all time, the Government now stipulates this definite time limit. Still, it is. better to have that limit than to have the measure to continue for ever.
