Senator MURPHY - No. I do not approve of the trick as described by the honourable senator. This was a report made by a committee comprising members of the various parties in the Senate. The Government will give proper consideration to that report. The honourable senator will recall that there is a resolution of the Senate- I am not sure whether it has been entirely observed but it ought to be- under which the Government would give an indication to the Senate within some time of its intentions in respect of any recommendations made by a committee of the Senate which call for Government action. I assure the honourable senator that every consideration will be given to the report and to the recommendations made and that the Government will do what it thinks proper, uninfluenced by any such suggestions as were made.
