Senator RAE (NEW SOUTH WALES) - On Friday last I unintentionally voted in favour of the third reading of the Naval and Military Decorations Bill, which I had opposed through its passage. When the question was put I did not hear any one but myself call for a division, and until I heard the bells cease to ring I was not aware that a division was in progress; after you, sir, had named the tellers it was too late for me to cross the floor. As I have been twitted with having spoken in one way and voted in another, I wish to put it on record that the vote was given quite unintentionally on my part.

Senator Millen - Was it unintentional on the Minister's part?
