Senator ST LEDGER (Queensland) . - This is one of the most contentious provisions of the Bill, but there are very few of the remaining clauses upon which there is likely to be any prolonged debate. There may be some discussion of the manning scale when we come to consider the schedules. If the Minister will agree to my request, I give him my assurance that I shall do all I can to see that rapid progress is made with the rest of the Bill. This clause raises a very big constitutional question, and one which I should like to approach fresh and prepared. I ask for this concession, because the proceedings this afternoon and evening show that honorable senators on this side have recognised the desire of the Minister to make substantial progress with the Bill.

Senator Long - Would not the postponement of this clause meet the honorable senator's view?

Senator ST LEDGER - Will the Minister agree to postpone the clause?

Senator Pearce - Yes.

Clause postponed.

Clauses 284 to 291 agreed to.

Clause 292 (Power to exempt).
