Senator MCGREGOR (South AustraliaVice President of the Executive Council) - - I take this opportunity to assure Senator Millen that there is nothing in this

Supply Bill that has not appeared in Supply Bills previously submitted from time to time. I have already assured the honorable senator, before the meeting of the Senate, that the only matter contained in the Bill, apart from the votes proposed for the ordinary services of the Commonwealth, is the usual vote for the Treasurer's Advance. Such a vote is attached to almost every Supply Bill. Consequently, I can give the honorable senator the assurance for which he asks, and I hope he will not resist the suspension of the Standing Orders. On the first reading of the Bill I shall give particulars showing why the amount of Supply required is probably larger than may have been required in past years, but not larger in proportion than the Supply which was voted for the two months of this year which have already passed.

Question resolved in the affirmative.
