Senator GIVENS (Queensland) . - I move -

That the amendment be agreed to.

The purpose of this alteration is to remove any doubt as to when a message is received from the other House relating to a Bill. Last year there were certain honorable gentlemen who were rather nervous as to when certain Bills would be received by the Senate. Probably they had in their minds the test Bills, or the Constitution Alteration Bills. In order to meet the objections then raised as to the vagueness of the standing order, this alteration is proposed, so that there can be no doubt as to when a Bill is received by the Senate.
