Mr MAUGER (Melbourne Ports) - I would urge that exactly the same objection may be made to the further consideration of this Bill as has been taken to going on with the Manufactures Encouragement Bill. Honorable members were not aware that this matter was coming on, and it is most objectionable to spring so important a matter upon us at this hour.

Mr Reid - I do not propose to ask the Committee to finish this stage of the Bill.. For instance, notice has been given of an important new clause, and I do not propose to ask the Committee to consider that at this stage.

Suggest corrections
