Senator LECKIE (Victoria) .- I recall that when the Leader of the Senate (Senator Collings) was Leader of the Opposition hie- denounced the previous Government for introducing bills appropriating millions of pounds and expecting the Senate to pass them in a few minutes. Although the bills were formal the honorable senator missed few opportunities of criticizing the Government for what he used to term " indecent haste " in the passing of money bills. The Leader of the Senate and his colleagues are now on the Government side of the chamber, and they have adopted the same method of dealing with formal money bill's as was employed by the previous Government. I wonder whether the Leader of the Senate will rise and ask that his past sins be forgiven, now that he has seen the light.
