Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - What Senator Rae now proposes is precisely what I asked the Committee to do some time ago, and what honorable senators refused to do.

Senator Rae - No.

Senator MILLEN - The Committee have divided on a proposition which, if carried, would have left the Government to determine under which Minister the Northern Territory should be placed. The Committee refused to accept that amendment, and Senator Rae now proposes another, which means exactly the same thing.

Senator Rae - My amendment is not out of order on that account.

Senator MILLEN - I am not saying that the amendment is out of order, but the Committee, having refused to do what I and Senator Rae believed to be the right thing, I doubt whether it is . now advisable to give it another chance.

Senator Rae - I think it is.
