Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - I would point out to Senator Guthrie that he cannot properly move his amendment in this, clause. It seeks to repeal two provisions which deal with contract labour, whereas he proposes to amend a provision which deals with another subject. It will be observed that the subject-matter of paragraph k of section 3 of the Act has nothing to do with contract labour. The honorable senator wishes to amend a general provision in the Act, and that, I submit, cannot be done in this Bill.

Senator GUTHRIE(South Australia). - I think that the Minister of Defence is labouring under a very great error regarding this matter.

Senator Playford - At all events, the amendment cannot be moved in a " repeal " clause. It must be moved in connexion with another clause.

Senator GUTHRIE - I could move the amendment as a new clause to follow the one before the Committee. 0

Senator Playford - Even then it would not deal with contract labour.
