Senator Playford - I think that Senator Stewart might withdraw hi's . amendment.

Senator WALKER - If Senator Playford will adhere to his amendment we will support him.

Senator PULSFORD(New South Wales). - I have a suggestion to make which I think will please all parties. I suggest that we fix a minimum of forty words., and a maximum of sixty words. That would give an average of fifty words, the number provided for in the principal Act.
