Mr DUGALD THOMSON (NORTH SYDNEY, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I agree with the honorable member for Hume that as. a division is not to be taken to-day the clause cannot be passed as it stands. I wish to know f 10m the Government what procedure they intend to adopt with regard to the amendment that will be necessary if we are to substitute another site for that which is mentioned in the Bill? Is it proposed that all the words after " shall be " be omitted, creating a blank which will be rilled up by another name; or, is it intended to substitute another site forthwith? There must be an opportunity to make sure that the site which is finally inserted is supported by a majority of the House. If the Government have made up their minds as to the procedure to be adopted, it is just as well that they should inform the Committee.
