Senator PAYNE (Tasmania) .- I protest strongly against the procedure adopted by the Minister regarding this item. To bring forward, without notice, what is practically a new item and to ask the committee to deal with it without any information being supplied, is unreasonable. The only fair course for the Minister to adopt would be to have the request printed and circulated among honorable senators, who would then have an opportunity to consider its effect. I suggested that the

Minister withdraw the proposed amendment at this stage, and adopt the course that I have suggested.
