Senator COLLINGS (Queensland) .- Has the Leader of the Senate (Senator Pearce) any information to convey to the Senate at this stage regarding the judgment delivered to-day by the High Court concerning the Commonwealth Government's powers in relation to aviation? I understand that the High Court has ruled that allthe powers which we thought the Commonwealth had in this matter are not, in fact, possessed by it. I am anxious to know whether the Government proposes to add a proposal for increased powers in that direction to the other matter proposed to be referred to the people by referendum.
