Senator WRIGHT (Tasmania) .- I voted for the request that the House of Representatives has rejected. I have listened to the explanation which was given by the Minister for Customs and Excise (Senator Anderson). I do not think that any reason which has fallen from the Minister, which is worth consideration either singly or collectively, would ever persuade me that my original decision was unsound. It is only in respect of money bills of rare significance that I think the Senate should assert its right to repeat a request against a decision of the House of Representatives which primarily is responsible for that type of measure. It is for that reason that I will vote for the course of not pressing the request.
