Senator WALKER (New South Wales) . - This is a case in which, I think, the Vice-President of the Executive Council might graciously give way. Even one of his own supporters thinks that he should. In Australia it is a matter of longitude as to when 12 o'clock on 30th June is; 12 o'clock in Queensland is not 12 o'clock in Western Australia. There are many cases in which a man may agree to sell, but may not be able to carry out the sale. Suppose, for argument's sake, that A agrees on the 28th June to sell, but, unfortunately, dies ; is not the agreement to be carried out? This is really a comparatively small amendment. Let us have the satisfaction of knowing that some honorable senator on this side has had the pleasure of seeing a small amendment made in the measure.
