Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - I should lite to make a suggestion. I am certain that every honorable senator, whilst claiming his full, right to have considered the amendment that he desires to move, has no wish to shut out any one else from exercising a similar right.

Senator DRAKE-BROCKMAN (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) -brockman. - Not at all.

Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Then I suggest that the honorable senator should merely move to omit the words " any complaint that a manufacturer is taking undue advantage of the 'protection afforded to him by the Tariff and in' particular ". If the Committee decided that those words should stand, it would still be free for an honorable senator to move amendments in the sub-paragraphs. On the other hand, if the amendment were agreed to, it would then be competent for the honorable senator taking the . passing of his amendment as an indication that the Committee wished to strike out the whole of the paragraph to move to that effect.
