Senator GUTHRIE (South Australia) . - Having taken a vote on the first amendment, and the numbers being against me, I intend to bow to that decision of the Committee.

Senator Millen - The superior judgment, the honorable senator means.

Senator GUTHRIE - No, the mistake made by those who did not support my amendment. In the circumstances, I shall Jet the other amendments go. But I wish to make it quite clear that those who voted against me have done so under a wrong impression.
