Mr FISHER (Wide Bay) (Prime Minister and Treasurer) . - I move -

That a sum not exceeding £1,143,343 be granted to His Majesty for or towards defraying the services of the year ending 30th June, 1915.

It is necessary to get this Bill put through to-day, to enable the mid-monthly payment to be made. It involves no new items of policy. I am sorry that its introduction is necessary, but that cannot be helped. The Estimates are still before the House, and I cannot do more than ask honorable members to be as good as they can in the matter.
