Senator Sir GEORGE PEARCE (Western Australia) (Minister for External Affairs) [10.45]. - in reply - The various matters mentioned by honorable senators will be placed before the Ministers whose departments are concerned. I point out, in all friendliness, that many points have been raised that might have been discussed more appropriately at the committee stage, when questions asked about details of administration could be answered by the Ministers concerned. On the first reading of a Supply bill, it is usual for honorable senators to avail themselves of the opportunity presented to debate general matters not referred to in the bill.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a first time.
