Senator McLACHLAN (South Australia) (Honorary Minister) . - I move -

That after the word " That" line 1, the following words be inserted : - " in accordance with sub-section 3 of section 17b of the Science and Industry Research Act 1920-26."

The amendment is merely formal. Its purpose is to put the journals in proper order. As the leader of the Senate has pointed out, the procedure now being adopted is somewhat unusual. The money that was appropriated under an earlier section of the act was paid into a trust account, and it can only be released in conformity with the resolution submitted by the Leader of the Senate. Similar steps must be taken in another place, and to make quite clear what is being done, it has been suggested, and I think the suggestion should be followed, that the amendment which I have submitted should be inserted.

Amendment agreed to.

Question, as amended, resolved in the affirmative.
