Senator ANDERSON (New South Wales) (Minister for Customs and Excise) . - I am very grateful to Senator Sir William Spooner and to Senator Wright for the diversion. I feel that this shows that we have not lost our sense of proportion in all the hurley and burley of the consideration of technical clauses. I cannot add very much to what I have already said in relation to the provision referred to. This is not my Bill. It is the Bill of the Postmaster-General (Mr. Hulme) whom I represent in the Senate. It provides fundamentally what the PostmasterGeneral wants to do in this regard, and I think that this has been fairly clearly stated. Proposed new section 92 (3.) (a) (ii) covers, not interests acquired after the prescribed date, but only such matters as the completion of alteration of Articles of Association. That comment, together with the information I have already given in support of that section, is just about as far as I feel I am competent to go in this matter.
