Senator PEARCE (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - The Senate can only deal with a regulation after it has been laid on the table. That enables an honorable senator to table a notice of motion to disallow the regulation, and give reasons for the disallowance. Do I understand the Minister to mean that he will give us an opportunity by laying any new regulations on the table of the Senate?

Senator MILLEN - Senator Pearce will see that there are other alterations which may be effected without regulations, and when I said " any alteration " I went beyond " regulations," and put it in the widest possible form, that the Government will not, in any step, spring a surprise on the Senate or the country. The Senatewill be. fully informed of the intentions of the Government. I do not think that I can say more, nor do I think that I ought to be asked more than that.
