Senator BLAKEY (Victoria) .- Adopting the argument of Senator Mullan, we might alter the word "thirty" to " one," and thus save six days more. When there has been a change of Administration after a general election, the new Ministry may desire time to revise, or at least to consider, new rules and regulations, and for that reason alone we might well leave the provision as it stands.

Senator Stewart - Why should the new rules be kept in cold storage for thirty days ?

Senator BLAKEY - That is better than that there should be hasty legislation. No good reason has been advanced for reducing the period.
