The PRESIDENT - Of course the honorable senator is perfectly justified in moving the amendment in the way which he wishes to do, but I would ask him to consider whether it would not be better to move for the omission of paragraph 3, and the insertion of his two proposals as one amendment.

Senator STEWART - I will adopt that course. I' move -

That paragraph 3 be left out, with a view to insert in lieu thereof the following words : -

Provided that such memorial be a public hospital, to be erected in an Australian city chosen by the Commonwealth Parliament, and that the people of the Commonwealth of Australia be invited to contribute by private subscription the balance of such sum as may be necessary for the erection and endowment of such memorial hospital.
