Senator O'KEEFE (Tasmania) . - I can quite understand the amendment, and I certainly think that it does go further than honorable members opposite have signified their intention of going. At all events, it would inform the Government that, in the opinion of the Senate, an Australian should be appointed, other things being equal. I cannot support it, however, because I intend to vote for the motion. But if the motion is lost I certainly would like to have an opportunity of voting for the amendment.
