Senator MILLEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) (Minister for Defence) - The only measures which the Government proposed to get through other than Supply we're two measures in respect to which the concurrence of the Leader of the Opposition, Mr. Fisher, was sought. One was a Bill to confer some powers on Mr. Justice Street, who has been appointed a Commissioner to inquire into the Beef and other trusts. Another small measure is to extend the period, by I think one month, within which the payment of certain bounties could be continued. These are the only two measures which the Government contemplate asking the Parliament to deal with.
