Senator A J McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) (Postmaster-General) . - I ask Senator Johnston not to press his amendment. Strong representations along similar lines have been made to the Treasurer both by the Chamber of Commerce and at the conference. The almost unanimous opinion of the conference of experts was that, if the request were acceded to, it would tend to destroy uniformity. The States would not be prepared to accept the proposal, in view of the variety and status of the courts which now deal with appeals. The AttorneyGenerals of the. States have agreed to accept the extension asked for as soon as an appellate tribunal has been constituted. At this stage, however, I cannot accept the amendment.
