Senator GIBSON (Victoria) .- 1 should like to include a definition of the word " Minister ". I know that the Constitution, the Acts Interpretation Act, and the Standing Orders of the Senate make provision for these appointments, but the public generally know nothing about them and I want to make the point quite clear to everybody who may be interested. I move -

That after the words " established under this act " the following words be inserted : - " ' The Minister ' shall be the Postmaster-General or the Minister administering this act."

I believe that the Minister will agree to the proposal.


Senator Ashley - I have no objection to it.
