Senator PULSFORD (New South Wales) - I hope the Committee will not agree to this amendment. I do not see the object of it. It seems rather to limit the power of the King, and does not increase the power of the Governor-General, who at any time, without the insertionof these words, can do what it says may be done. But the King, if we make the amendment, cannot act without a request from the Governor-General. Therefore it distinctly curtails the power of the Home Government to take steps which might be to our advantage.

Motion agreed to.
