Senator RAE (New South Wales) . - I should like to point out the extraordinary state of affairs into which the finances of the Commonwealth appear to have drifted while the late Government was in office, as revealed by this Bill. It is a pity that a larger number of members of the Opposition are not present to bear the whole of the shame for this shady kind of finance. We are authorizing, in 19 10, payments made by the late Government. Surely this shows the neglect of proper financial management which occurred during the regime of the Government supported by honorable members opposite. Our views on this matter ought to be placed on record.
