Mr BRYANT (Wills) - I support the honourable member for Lalor (Mr Barry Jones). After all, the Minister's party has passed some pretty dreadful legislation in its time.

Dr Cass - What do you mean? I thought you meant the party of the honourable member for Lalor.

Mr BRYANT - I would be the first to admit that occasionally even our side of the House has done things like this when it has wanted them in a hurry. What intrigues me is the necessity to produce three pieces of legislation for what is about five minutes work. Has it something to do with some constitutional requirement that ought to be amended, or is it just some piece of pedantry that flows from a legal mind, or is it a full employment program for printers, paper manufacturers, or draftsmen?

Dr Cass - Or parliamentarians.

Mr BRYANT -Or parliamentarians.
