Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) - I am sure that Senator Pulsford, in submitting this amendment, has no other object in view than to provide a simple way of taking a test vote.

Senator Pulsford - Hear, hear.

Senator MILLEN - I think, however, that the better way would be to move the omission of one word only on the understanding that honorable senators for or against will be voting for or against the principle of the clauses. This course would not prevent any honorable senator from submitting a subsequent amendment.

Senator PULSFORD - I ask leave to amend my proposal so that it shall read -

That the House of Representatives' amendment be amended by leaving out the word " insert," line 1.

Amendment of the House of Representatives' amendment amended accordingly.
