The CHAIRMAN (Senator Bakhap - The preceding item has already been dealt with. I wish to make myself clear to honorable senators, once and for all. On at least half-a-dozen other occasions I have alluded to this matter, and I shall make no further deliverances on it. If honorable senators desire to make any alteration in the verbiage of an item, or to move any sub-paragraph which they think is necessary, arising out of such item, they must do so before the duties are put to the Committee. Once the duties are put, they govern the verbiage, and then to make any alteration in the verbiage would be tantamount to a reversal of the decision of the Committee. As I understand procedure, that cannot be permitted.

Senator PRATTEN (NEW SOUTH WALES) - Will you, Senator Bakhap, guide me, if possible, as to whether at any time before a division is completed an honorable senator may move to add any new item, bringing under it any parts not elsewhere included?
