The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Kingsmill (WESTERN AUSTRALIA) - I shall now put clauses 6 to 11 to the committee.

Senator Givens - I rise to order. I have had very little experience in committee work; but the practice now proposed is quite new to me. The clauses of a bill should be submitted separately ; but in this case, sir, you are proposing to put clauses 6 to 11. If this practice is to be persisted in, I shall object, and it will then be some time before the bill passes the committee stage. This measure has been in our hands only a few minutes, and one of such importance should be carefully considered.

The TEMPORARY CHAIRMAN (Senator Kingsmill - If the honorable senator objects to the method which I proposed to adopt, I shall put each clause separately. The question now is: " That clause 6 be agreed to. "

Clause agreed to.

Clauses 7 to 30 agreed to.
