Senator RUSSELL (Victoria) (Assistant Minister) , - I move -

ThatthisBillbe now reada first time.

In submitting the motion, I have to say that the Bill covers a period of three months, and the amount asked for is £8,611,587. It is based upon the average of the supply required for three months of last year. It includes only the ordinary payments for the services of the Departments, and the object of its introduction is that the Commonwealth services may be carried on under ordinary conditions in anticipation of the annual Appropriation Bill, which must be considered at a later stage of the session.
