Senator PALTRIDGE (Western Australia) (Minister for Defence) . - I move -

That the Bill be now read a second time.

The purpose of this measure is to appropriate the amounts required for expenditure in 1964-65 from the Consolidated Revenue Fund other than those amounts provided by special appropriations and the Appropriation (Special Expenditure) Bill. The amounts sought for each department are shown in detail in the Second Schedule to the Bill, the sum of these amounts being £1,094,117,000. This Bill seeks an appropriation of £670,413,000, the balance of £423,704,000 having already been granted under the Supply Act 1964-65.

The expenditure proposals of the Government were outlined in the Budget Speech and the details included in the Schedule to this bill have already been examined under the procedure whereby the Senate in Committee has taken note of the amounts included in the document " Particulars of Proposed Expenditure for the Ordinary Annual Services of the Government in respect of the year ending 30th June 1965".

I commend the Bill to honorable senators.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without requests or debate.
