The CHAIRMAN - Order! I remind the honorable member that the committee is not discussing the bill itself. Discussion must be confined to the amendment requested by the Senate.

Mr LAZZARINI - The Government and its supporters cannot view matters of this kind with any human feeling; they see thorn only through the eyes of cold-blooded commercialism. Their sole desire is to get as much as possible and to give as little as possible. I should like to hoar what honorable members opposite, who, on an earlier occasion, were favorable to the proposal to provide sickness benefit from the first clay of incapacity, have to say now in regard to the matter. The Treasurer has not been fair in dealing with this amendment. I hope that the discussion on it will continue until he is convinced that it is the desire of this committee that sickness benefit shall commence on the first day of incapacity.
