Mr SPEAKER - The wide national view of the honorable member is appreciated, but this bill is restricted in its scope, and I ask him to keep his remarks within its limits.

Mr WEST - I am not opposed to this measure; as a matter of fact, I am in favour of it, and I should like to see its provisions extended. This is a step in the right direction. My contention is that there is no necessity for people to carry firearms in Australia. We have a police force, and we are a law-abiding people. I am glad of the opportunity of saying these few words for the general enlightenment of my fellow-citizens, and I hope that the publicity given to them will assist towards bringing about the object which I have in view.
