Mr WHITE (Balaclava) . - This bill is too important to be .rushed through in this way. Although the hour is late, I express my disapproval of such action. The Leader of the Opposition (Mr. Menzies) said that an expenditure of probably £250,000 is involved in the proposal before us. That expenditure would be a colossal waste at a time when there should be a pruning of government expenditure. The Government has said that it will reduce taxes, and already it has made some reductions.
