Senator SAYERS (Queensland) . - Senator Story coupled my name with that of Senator Millen, and declared that I was not sincere.

Senator Story - The honorable senator does not like the truth.

Senator SAYERS - I am not going to allow the honorable senator's statement to pass without contradiction. I have been present throughout the discussion of this Bill, and at the request of the Leader of the Opposition I had intended to curtail my remarks this afternoon as much as possible. But Senator Story has chosen to drag into this debate a subject which is not now under consideration - I refer to the projected railway from the Federal Capital site to Jervis Bay. I give the statement which he made in that connexion, so far as he applied it to myself, an unqualified denial.
