Sir WILLIAM LYNE - I listened to the speech of Senator McGregor, and he said that the railway would be 100 miles shorter if it were made viâ Bombala than is the distance by the existing route. I wish to correct that impression, and to show that the distance would be 100 miles longer instead of 100 miles shorter. There are some other matters to which I wish to refer, and I shall allude to them if necessary before the debate closes. I trust that it will not be a long debate, because the whole subject has been discussed at considerable length, and the position now resolves itself into this - whether we are in favour of Bombala or

Tumut. If the majority of honorable members are in favour of Bombala, of course we shall agree with the Senate. If, as I hope will be the case, we re-insert the word "Tumut," with the conditions that were previously inserted, we shall send the Bill back to the Senate with a confirmation of i what we previously affirmed. I shall not detain the Committee longer at this stage, for the reasons which I have given. I move -

That the amendment omitting the word "Tumut" and inserting the word "Bombala" be disagreed to.
