The CHAIRMAN (Senator Bakhap - This is a particularly long clause, and I hope honorable senators will bear with me if I just say a word dr two with respect to it. My construction ' of the Standing Orders is that a clause must be' put as a whole, but in order to facilitate discussion of the clause, I purpose to read each marginal note, and I . shall expect honorable senators to discuss that section of the clause to which the marginal note applies. We shall proceed continuously through the whole clause in this way. I trust honorable senators will not retrogress after one section of the clause has been called on.

Senator Pearce - I shall find it somewhat difficult to make my explanations upon several portions of the clause without referring to the whole clause.
