Senator PLAYFORD (South Australia) (Minister of Defence) . - U - Undoubtedly, the draftsman will be consulted, because the measure, as we amend it, must be sent back to another place. If it is found that the words we have inserted are not sufficiently explicit, better words may be inserted in another place, from which the Bill will be returned to us for reconsideration. I prefer that course to that suggested by Senator Millen, namely, that I should consult the Parliamentary Draftsman, and afford an opportunity for further amendment to-morrow. If it be considered by the Attorney-General and the draftsman that any alteration is necessary, that alteration can be made in another place.
