The PRESIDENT - The honorable senator will see that this Bill has reference to the pro3uction of iron only.

Senator PULSFORD - The Minister of Defence has pointed out that iron is the basis of a great many manufacturing industries, and on a measure dealing with iron we should be able to discuss a vast number of subjects were we so inclined. I congratulate the Ministry on having had the wisdom to forego the attempt made" in the first instance to put the power to bring this wretched little Bill into operation at the pleasure of a single Minister, and I congratulate honorable senators that it is still in the hands of the Parliament of the Commonwealth to deal with the matter in its due time.
