Senator LAUCKE (South Australia) -Mr Acting Deputy President, I seek leave to move the motion which I foreshadowed in the debate last Tuesday, 12 November, relating to the report of Estimates Committee C, to refer a matter to the Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs.

Senator Murphy - Will you put the motion without debate?

Senator LAUCKE

The ACTING DEPUTY PRESIDENT (Senator Lawrie)- Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator LAUCKE -I move:

That the following matter be referred to the Senate Standing Committee on Constitutional and Legal Affairs:

The variations disclosed in the reports of Estimates Committees A and C from the practice as announced on 13 May 1965 by the Commonwealth Treasurer that appropriations for new policies not authorised by special legislation would be included in a Bill amendable by the Senate.

And that the Committee consider and report to the Senate upon the means by which the constitutional right of the Senate to amend proposed laws appropriating revenue or moneys for expenditure on matters other than the ordinary annual services of the Government may be preserved.
