Senator MILLINER (Queensland) -I am sorry that the motion declaring the Bill an urgency Bill has been moved because I believe that such a motion was completely unnecessary.I believe that the extravagant words used by the AttorneyGeneral (Senator Greenwood) were equally unnecessary. If we would reflect for one moment we would see that what he has been doing is casting reflections upon the Chairman of Committees and the President of the Senate. He said that there has been filibustering. If that were so, Mr Chairman, it would have been your responsibility and the responsibility of the President to prevent such action. The AttorneyGeneral could have taken a point of order if he thought that such were the case, but he did not do so.
