Senator PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . - I do not go so far as that. We have postponed items 8 and 9, and I have said that, in the case of all those related items, if on the consideration of the postponed items it can be shown that there is a good case for further consideration, I shall move for recommittal on behalf of the Government. This, of course, will be governed by the attitude that the Committee take up, and what is elicited in the discussion on the postponed items 8 and 9. It may be there will be no necessity to recommit.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Should this item be passed on that understanding, I take it that it will be within the province of any honorable senator, on the postponed items 8 and 9, to refer to the matters relating to those postponed items on the items now under consideration.
