Senator FINDLEY (Victoria) . - May I ask the Minister in what respect was the language of the sub-item ambiguous, and why it was necessary further to amend it? Does not the action of the Ministry in this sub-item bear out what I have just said about the unbusinesslike methods of this Government?

Senator Sir Henry Barwell - We might as well ask why the honorable senator allowed the sub-item to pass when last it was before us.

Senator FINDLEY - I remind the honorable senator that I am not running this country, and, therefore, I am not responsible for the mistake made by the Government. I should like the Minister to explain in what way the language of this sub-item made it difficult of comprehension for those who will have the administration of the act.
