Senator LYNCH (Western Australia) . - I desire to move -

That section 96 of the principal Act be repealed.

The object of my proposal is to enable members of State Parliaments to contest seats for this Parliament whenever the opportunity to do so presents itself.

Senator Millen - I understand that Senator Lynch desires to move the deletion of section 96 of the principal Act. I ask your ruling, sir, as to whether it is competent for him to do so. It has already been laid down in the Senate time and again that an amendment of an amending Bill must be relevant to that Bill. Only this afternoon a ruling was given to that effect.
