Senator O'KEEFE - I desire, by leave of the Senate, to make an explanation regarding the vote I have just given. I had arranged to pair with Senator Clemons, and, as that honorable senator was not present, I should not have .taken part in the division-. However, I was engaged entering pairs in the pair-book, and inadvertently I remained in the Chamber until the doors were closed. However, the majority was large enough to carry the second reading without mv vote, so the result is not affected.

The PRESIDENT - The Senate fakes no cognizance of pairs.

Senator Lt Col Gould - We willingly recognise that the honorable senator's mistake was entirely inadvertent.

Bill read a second time, and committed pro io,ma
