Mr BRUCE (FLINDERS, VICTORIA) (Assistant Treasurer) . - The clause provides that the certificate of the AuditorGeneral, having been given, and that amount, or some smaller amount, having been embodied in a resolution of this Parliament, clauses 7 to 13, prescribing the subsequent procedure, shall apply. The amendment has the same effect, but provides that where a smaller amount than the total which the Auditor-General has certified is included in the resolution, the item or items comprised in that amount shall be stated. It in no way resembles the amendment relating to the proclamation, as the honorable member for West Sydney (Mr. Beasley) has declared. The Government has no power to vary items after they have been included in the resolution of Parliament.
