My personal view coincides with that of the Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Menzies) that the bill passes the House at its third reading. ' To comply with the Constitution it is absolutely essential that a count of the House take place at that stage; but there is another point of view, which I think is held by the Attorney-General (Dr. Evatt), that at some subsequent time a point might be taken that the bill was not properly passed, unless a count was made on both the second reading and the third reading.
