The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN - The honorable member for Hindmarsh must confine his remarks to the hill.

Mr THOMPSON - Under clause 3, the sum of £600,000 is to be made available to the State of South Australia. That is the only aspect of the measure with which I propose to deal; and I simply wish to point out that as the result of this assistance the Government of that State will not be faced with such a deficit as might oblige it to do what was done by a Liberal government in South Australia when it declared, in the terms of the relevant budget speech, that school teachers would have to be satisfied with 5 per cent, less than the wages prescribed under their award.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN.Order ! The honorable member must confine his remarks to the bill.
