The PRESIDENT - Is leave granted? There being no objection, leave is granted.

Senator WITHERS -I do this for the sole reason that I think each time Senator Murphy has put down a Bill of this nature he has indicated officially to the Senate that Government senators would have what he terms a free vote. I wish only to indicate to the Senate that Liberal Party senators also will have a free vote, not only in relation to the contents of the Bill but also in relation to the procedural motions which might be moved during consideration of the Bill.

Senator Webster - In the absence of my Leader, who will return shortly, I indicate that the Country Party holds the same view as does the Leader of the Opposition in the Senate (Senator Withers), namely, that our Party will be holding a free vote.
