Mr McMAHON - As to the first part of the honorable gentleman's question, it is my intention to move the second reading of the two relevant bills tomorrow. As to the second part, I can see no- relationship between a controversial measure in the shape of a bill relating to waterside workers and. long service leave and a bill relating to patents or, for that matter, marriage or divorce. Thirdly, I have no intention of leaving this bill on the notice-paper for any great length of time. I believe that once it has been introduced it should be proceeded with at reasonable speed provided th;it adequate opportunity is given for debate on the measure. So it is my intention, whilst giving all reasonable opportunity for debate, to ensure that the bill goes through during the current sittings of the House.
