Senator J B HAYES (Tasmania) (5:49 AM) . - In the base years 1939-40 and 1940-41, child endowment cost New South Wales about £1,300,000 annually. The Commonwealth Government has now relieved the Government of New South Wales of the responsibility of paying child endowment, and consequently I contend that the grant to New South Wales should be reduced by that amount. I shall support the amendment.

Question put -

That the words and figures proposed to be left out be left out (Senator McBride's amendment ) .
