Senator DE LARGIE (Western Australia) . - Are we to understand that when the Estimates come on for discussion we shall have a better and fuller opportunity to discuss this question?

Senator Russell - This Bill was brought in to enable that to be done.'

Senator DE LARGIE - There is not much left of this month to discuss the whole of the Estimates for the year.

Senator Keating - We shall have unlimited time on the Estimates, because this Bill will pay accounts up to the end of the financial year.

Senator DE LARGIE - If on the EstimatesinChief we carry a motion for the reduction of any item or items, even though all the Supply Bills for the year have already been passed, will that reduction operate if indorsed by another place ? I ask for an assurance on this point, because I desire to discuss the question raised by Senator Stewart, but it is obvious that there is no time to do it this afternoon on this Bill.
