Senator W RUSSELL (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) . - I arn not at all satisfied with the way in which this Bill is being handled. I understand that it is intended to remove anomalies and to prevent injustices. If that be the intention, we ought to know. We cannot afford to rush Bills through without understanding them. Though I am a supporter of the Government, I do object to this procedure. The Bill ought to be explained so that every honorable senator can understand it. If anomalies are to be rectified, let the Minister explain what they are. I know that some injustices have occurred. I have heard landholders complain of them. I believe that some have hod reason to complain. But it is most unsatisfactory to have a Bill introduced as this has been by my worthy friend Senator McGregor.
