Senator McGREGOR (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I think that Senator Millen ought to clearly see that the fears which have been expressed by some honorable senators opposite, that they will be taxed in other directions, might be allayed by an amendment of this description, and, consequently, I think that it ought to be made.
