Senator GIVENS (Queensland) - I respectfully suggest that the desire to propose frivolous amendments' of this sort-

Senator Lt Col Gould - Does the honorable senator call this amendment frivolous?

Senator GIVENS - The difference between the time proposed by Senator Pulsford and that mentioned in the Bill cannot be more than six weeks. If honorable senators have a desire to propose a considerable number of amendments in order to block legislation, and set up a stone-wall, let us get to some of the interesting clauses of the Bill.

Senator Lt Col Gould - There isno justification for saying that.

Senator Millen - I desire, Mr. Chairman, to ask your ruling as to whether the honorable senator is justified in alluding to the proceedings of last F riday when he refers to a stone-wall?
