Senator SENIOR (South Australia) . - Upon turning up the division of the Act to which this amendment applies, I find that the headline does not harmonize with that division. Provision is made in the Act for something more than entrance examinations.

Senator Russell - For entrance examinations and appointments.

Senator SENIOR - The entrance examinations seem to preclude any further examinations during the time that an officer continues in the Service. The amendment proposed by the Minister will not, therefore, be an improvement upon the Act. In common with Senator Thomas, I think it is scarcely possible for any honorable senator to become seized of the effect of the pages of amendments which the Government are bringing forward in the short space of one hour. I amnot in a position to understand what is proposed except in regard to the first few clauses of the Bill. Some of the amendments are of so drastic and farreaching a character that they require a good deal of consideration.
