Senator PLAYFORD - I laid these regulations upon the table a moment ago. The answers to the honorable senator's questions are as follow: -

1.   A copy of the regulations will be laid on the table. It is pointed out that except as to Part II., they will come 'into operation on the 1st October. Part II., relating to imports, will come into operation on the 1st January, 1907.

2.   Yes.

Senator Mulcahy - When shall we have an opportunity?

Senator PLAYFORD - If the honorable senator will turn to the Customs Act, he will find that there is a provision to the effect that regulations shall be published in the Gazette, and shall be laid before both Houses of Parliament ; and, if either House passes a resolution within fifteen days disallowing any regulation, it will not come into operation. The honorable senator has only to give notice of motion to disallow any regulation to which he objects.
