Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - With respect to the amendment of Senator Guthrie, I ask that he also withdraw, in view of the promise given by the Government, under the terms of which this same subject-matter must again come before the Senate. The honorable senator will then have his opportunity, if he sees fit, to propose his amendment, and that would be the proper opportunity for so doing. If his amendment is withdrawn at this stage, and the original proposal of the Government is agreed to, I shall be justified in assuming that the Senate is in agreement with the proposition, but that it desires to have it set out specifically in one or other of the forms which have been outlined.

Senator GUTHRIE (VICTORIA) - Under those conditions I am quite agreeable, if permitted, to the withdrawal of my amendment.

Amendment, by leave,- withdrawn.
