Senator FOLL (QUEENSLAND) - I fail to see how it will do that. I believe that a continuance of the disagreements which previously existed between the Commonwealth and the States would have hastened unification. Harmonious relationships such as now exist and which we hope will continue, will not do that. I feel sure that Senator Thomas, whether or not he now believes in unification - I understand that at one time he did - is, like myself, gratified that the unfortunate tangle of Commonwealth and State finances has been reasonably straightened out by the agreement, and, therefore, that he will support the bill, believing that it will do much to place the financial relations of the Commonwealth and States on a more satisfactory footing.
