Senator Lt Colonel O'Loghlin - Is there any loose money lying around ?

Senator PEARCE - At times there is, and it is always convenient to have a bag ready for it. The Bill is of such a formal character that I have no doubt the Senate will agree to pass it through its remaining stages without discussion.
