Senator E D MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Wales-Minister for Repatriation) , - I quite recognise the force d£Senator Plain's contention. The position is (hat, judging by the rate of .progress! which the Committee .has hitherto made with the schedule, the officers advising the> Vice-President of the Executive Council (Senator Russell) did not anticipate that we would reach this item by this time. I suggest that if the Committee 'will pass the item as it stands, we can recommit it, together with other items which, no* doubt, will be recommitted, 'for further consideration. I am sot abandoning the proposal. 1 ask the Committee to pass it on the understanding -that when full information is available it will be reconsidered. The Committee can then decide the proposal on its merits.
