Mr HAROLD HOLT (HIGGINS, VICTORIA) (Treasurer) - As I indicated when I made my statement to the House the other night, the proposal which the Government will introduce by way of legislation at this stage is of an interim character. It is recognized as being far from perfect in its present form for any indefinite period of operation. How long a more permanent measure should operate and the manner in which it would operate are questions of Government policy which have received a good deal of consideration already, and that consideration will continue. We now feel free to discuss openly some of the problems which are manifest and of which the honorable gentleman has given some examples. I suggest to him that study will be given to the latter part of his question and that I hope to be able to answer him in more detail shortly.
