Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Repatriation) . - I am not averse to accepting the suggestion of Senator Payne, and I would have agreed to it with comparative cheerfulness an hour ago. Although I am prepared to accept it, the Senate must understand that its action in this con-, nexion cannot affect the attitude which the Government may take in the other Chamber. I shall confer with my colleagues on this matter, and I hope I shall not be charged with inconsistency if I have to ask the Senate to reconsider its decision.
