The CHAIRMAN (Mr Bell


Mr BEASLEY - The Government is adopting a most unfair attitude in trying to obtain authority under this amendment, particularly in view of the general circumstances of this country. Its supporters, both inside and outside of this chamber, are adopting an attitude that is inimical to the best interests of this country. It is an attitude that has been condemned by prominent men overseas. Yet it is being maintained at the expense of the suffering unemployed, of the Business man who has been forced into bankruptcy, and of the struggling farmer who has been thrown on the road. I hope the honorable member will reject the amendment.
