Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for External Affairs) [4.58].- I do not think that there can be any doubt that the amendment moved by Senator Duncan-Hughes would increase the appropriation. The Senate has not the power to amend a money bill, but it can request the House of Representatives to do so. Obviously, if the period over which claims for the subsidy can be made is to be extended, the charge or burden on the people must be increased. Therefore, the suggested amendment should be in the form of a request.
