Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - In moving -

That this Bill be now read a first time,

I wish to intimate to honorable senators that this is a measure on the motion for the first reading of which they are at liberty to discuss any subject. But seeing that the session is so far advanced, I suggest that in would be better to allow the Bill to be read a first time without debate and to discuss this Bill and the Land Tax Assessment Bill together on the motion for the second reading. That would be following a practice which it has been suggested by Senator Gould should be adopted with respect to the Sugar Bounty Bill and the Excise Sugar Bill.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a first time.
