Debate resumed from the 10th July (vide page 2369), on motion by Mr. Calwell -

That the bill bc now read a second time.

Mr.CALWELL (Melbourne- Minister for Immigration and Minister for

Information)[3.35]. -in reply - The honorable memberfor Wentworth (Mr. Harrison) offered several suggestions and criticisms. He said in the first instance that no adequate tribute had been paid to the work performed by Amalgamated Wireless (Australasia) Limited in developing overseas radio telegraph services. Had he referred to my secondreading speech he would have found that a tribute was paid to the enterprise of the company in developing its overseas telegraph services, and to the efficient manner in which it had operated the various services under its control.

Mr HARRISON (WENTWORTH, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I referred to that, and said that the recognition was tardy and inadequate.
