Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) . - I only want to say that if this Bill does not refer to the war, and is not intended as a warmeasure, it has absolutely no meaning. It is a war census. It is not for any civil purpose, but for war purposes only, since its operation is specifically limited to the duration of' the war.

Mr Fisher - The information will live longer than the war. The Bill applies only to the taking of a census for one period only, and not a recurring one.
