Senator FRASER (Western Australia) (Minister for External Territories) .- I move-

That the hill be now read a second time.

This measure provides for the appropriation of revenue for the ordinary services of the various departments. The expenditure proposals of the Government have already been dealt with in the budget debate, and it is not proposed to deal now with the various items in detail. Any explanation that may be desired by honorable senators will be furnished at the committee stage. The bill provides for an appropriation of £64,226,000 for the services of the year 1941-42, to which should be added the amounts already granted under Supply Acts Nos. 25, 27 and 30 of 1941, namely, £15,141,000 and £11,576,000 and £16,221,000, respectively, making a total of £107,164,000, which is the estimated expenditure from annual appropriations for ordinary services for the year 1941-42, as set out in detail in the second schedule of the bill.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without requests or debate.
