Senator GARDINER (New South Wales) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - In moving -

That this Bill be now read a second time,

I desire to say that it is merely a machinery measure to give effect to the Bill with which we have just dealt. Its principles are embodied in clause 2, which provides that the laws of any State relating; to the qualification of jurors, the preparation of jury lists and jury panels, &c, shall extend and be applied to the trial of indictable offences in the High Court in that State.

Senator de Largie - Surely the VicePresident of the Executive Council does not intend to carry this Bill to-day ?

Senator GARDINER - Without it the measure which we have just passed will be useless, and both are urgent measures.

Senator de Largie - I have nothing more to say.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time and reported without amendment; report adopted.

Bill read a third time.
