Mr BEASLEY (West Sydney) . - The honorable member for Darling (Mr. Blakeley) has courteously handed me a typewritten copy of the amendments which the Government proposes to move to this bill. It is apparent, therefore, that the Minister in charge of the bill has extended a courtesy to the official Opposition which he has not extended to other parties. The right honorable gentleman may consider these to be minor amendments; but surely it is our right to determine for ourselves the real significance Of them. I still feel that it is necessary, at this early stage in the life of the Government, to indicate that we expect Ordinary courtesies to he extended to us. I shall vote against this amendment as a protest against the procedure which the Government is adopting.
