Senator E B JOHNSTON (Western Australia) - by leave - No one could have supported the principle contained in my amendment to theInter-State Commission Bill more heartily than did some senators from Western Australia last week. In this connexion, I refer particularly to your own speech, Mr. President, which showed that you stood wholeheartedly behind those amendments. The matter which has been referred to this afternoon is, after all, only like a storm in a tea cup. So far as I can see, nothing has been done to warrant the threats which have been made against the press this afternoon.
