Senator CLEMONS (TasmaniaHonorary Minister) . - I move -

That this Bill be now read a first time.

A custom has grown up here on the first reading of a money Bill--

Senator Pearce - We have not forgotten it.

Senator CLEMONS - I do not think that any honorable senator can forget the custom. It is not usual, I think, for the Minister introducing a Supply Bill to go into details at this stage. I propose to leave that, I am sure with the full con-: currence of honorable senators, for the second-reading stage.
