Senator COLLINGS (Queensland) .- As the Minister gave us no assurance that he will safeguard the allocation of this money in order to prevent it from reaching the bank accounts of those who cannot by any stretch of the imagination be said to require it, I move -

That at the end of the clause the following proviso be added: - " Provided no approval shall be given in respect of payment to any wheatgrower who is assessed as capable of paying working expenses and meeting present interest charges, plus £260 per annum."

Senator Brennan - If this amendment be rejected, the honorable senator will apparently continue to move similar amendments, merely altering the amount each time.

TheCHAIRMAN (Senator Sampson). - As the amendment moved by the honorable senator is, in substance, the same as the amendment just negatived, only the amount being altered, I rule that it is out of order.
