Senator McLEAY (South Australia) (Leader of the Opposition) . - The Opposition support the measure in principle. We shall have an opportunity to discuss its details in the committee stage. At this juncture, I congratulate those responsible for the administration of the child endowment scheme. Those officers had very little time in which to set the scheme in operation. I have followed their work very closely, and have noted with pleasure that they are doing a very good job. In view of the circumstances in which the scheme was launched, it is not surprising that a few anomalies have arisen with which we shall now have an opportunity to deal.
