The PRESIDENT - The position is that Senator O'Keefe has moved, as an amendment upon the motion, that the figures i., ii., and iii., be left out. I point out that if the amendment is put and negatived, the Senate will have affirmed that questions i., ii., and iii. should stand ; and the motion then cannot be separated to that extent. If, however, Senator O'Keefe desires to withdraw his amendment, and has the leave of the Senate to do so, I can treat the question as a complicated one, and put each sub-section separately.

Senator O'Keefe - I ask leave to withdraw my amendment?

Senator McGregor - Would it not be more expeditious to put the amendment of Senator O'Keefe, and then the other two proposals separately? There is a general consensus of opinion, I think, that the three sub-sections referred to in Senator O'Keefe's amendment should stand ; though there may be doubts about the other two.

Amendment, by leave, withdrawn.
