Senator McCOLL (Victoria) (VicePresident of the Executive Council) . - The honorable senator who moved the motion did not pay me the courtesy of notifying me of his intention to bring the matter forward, and I have, therefore, no information to give to the Senate regarding it. A clause was put in the agreement, through the energy of Senator Keating, compelling the companies to approach the Department for permission to make any increase in freights or fares; but I have not heard that any application has been made to the Department in that direction. If the matter is as Senator Keating stated, it will have the closest and keenest attention on the part of the Government.
