Senator JAMES McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) . - I call to mind an old saying that a man who cannot take a licking cannot take anything. Ten years ago, when I was a member of the South Australian Parliament, I opposed the construction of this line, and I also expressed my opposition to the proposal when speaking on the budget papers this year. Now that- the line is to become an accomplished fact, however, I feel bound to state my pleasure that the South Australian and the Commonwealth Governments have reached an amicable understanding in regard to this matter, and I trust that the railway will prove the success that the Leader of the Senate (Senator Pearce) has envisaged.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.
