Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) (Minister of Defence) . - I shall see that the remarks of my honorable friends are brought under the notice of the Minister of Trade and Customs, but I wish to assure Senator Guthrie that the matter is not at present as he states itThere are items in the Bill which suggest inquiry which would keep the Senate going foi- many days to come. Honorable senators are masters of their" own proceedings. I do not question the right of any honorable senator to seek information, but it will be readily understood that I am not in a position to supply information at first hand on the various items of the schedule. If honorable senators desire information they might allow me to take notes of their inquiries, and I will undertake that, through the ordinary channels of communication, they will receive answers to those inquiries.
