Senator JAMES McLACHLAN (SOUTH AUSTRALIA) - I do not favour unification and will fight it to the last ditch. I am a democrat. If the people of Australia want unification, and can get it in a constitutional manner, I shall submit to it; but I shall not agree to its introduction under cover of a bill of this kind. I favour uniform taxation, if it .be brought about by an equitable scheme, but in my opinion the proposal now being debated is the child of avarice and greed. It is ill-conceived, and for the benefit of Australia I trust that it will be strangled at birth.
