Senator MILLEN (New South Wales) . - The interjection of Senator Lynch is quite reasonable. The Committee might have expected that the Minister in charge of the Bill would explain the object of the amendment, and why it is sought to be made. Probably, however, it is so simple a matter that he did not think it necessary to explain it. Having a copy of the Bill in my hand, I can. see at once what is meant, but it is not fair to the Committee that we should have no explanation when we are asked to follow this rather unusual procedure.
