The CHAIRMAN (Senator Brown (QUEENSLAND) - The clause gives authority to borrow the sum of £75,000,000. An honorable senator, therefore, cannot discuss the payment of interest under this provision.

Senator CAMERON - In view of the damaging statements which have been made concerning the intentions of the Government, which, I submit, are honorable in the highest degree, and in order that any false impression which may have been deliberately and maliciously created in that respect shallbe dispelled, and the actual intentions of the Government set out in crystal pure light, may I, through you, Mr. Chairman, ask the Minister in charge of the bill if it isthe intention of the Government to pay interest onthe money proposed to be borrowed under this bill ?
