The PRESIDENT - I have received the following message No. 216 from the House of Representatives:

Mr President,

The House of Representatives transmits to the Senate a Bill intituled 'A Bill for an Act to facilitate alterations to the Constitution and to allow Electors in Territories, as well as Electors in the States, to vote at Referendums on Proposed Laws to alter the Constitution', in which it desires the concurrence of the Senate.

James F. Cope SPEAKER

House of Representatives

Canberra, 2 1 November 1973

The expression 'referendums' sounds odd to me.

Standing Orders suspended.

Bill (on motion by Senator Murphy) read a first time.

Suggest corrections
