Senator WALKER (New South Wales) . - It seems to me that I should not allow this motion to pass without expressing, on behalf of the Senate, at all events of myself, congratulations to the Ministry upon having introduced a nonparty measure, and having received the cordial support of honorable senators on this side. I only desire to show . that we are not, as is too frequently suggested, actuated by party motives. Whenever the Ministry bring forward a Bill which we believe to be above party, as this measure is, they may depend upon having the hearty support of every honorable senator on this side. I congratulate the Minister of Defence upon his able introduction of this Bill.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a third time.
