Senator RAE (New South Wales) . - This clause provides that any transfer may be for " such period and subject to such conditions as the GovernorGeneral " may think desirable; and I take it that that means the Government. The Minister, in replying on the second reading, said that Parliament , would be called together in the event of an emergency, in order to sanction any action by the Government; but I fail to see any provision in the clause for calling the Parliament together.
