Mr HAROLD HOLT (HigginsTreasurer) (1:26 AM) . - 1 am not going to detain the House. It is obvious that this is a bill which has been received with mixed feelings around the chamber. But it is a bill which breaks new ground for this Parliament. It is a very substantial bill in that respect. It will be judged on its operation over the years ahead. No doubt the legislation will be before the Parliament from time to time al it settles down. But my purpose in rising to comment on it is to say that whatever views members may have individually regarding the Bill and its contents, I think they will agree that its conduct by a relatively new Minister has been a substantial personal achievement. I think that the House should join in congratulating the Attorney-General (Mr. Snedden) upon it.
