Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - In reply to the various comments of honorable senators, I wish to deal very briefly with one or two points. The foremost of these has to do with the question of the constitutionality of the course proposed. The Government did not form their ideas, concerning the constitutionality of their intended procedure, merely upon their own judgment.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - May I ask, Mr. President, whether the speech of the Minister will have the effect of concluding the debate ? There are several other honorable senators who desire to speak.
