Senator SHANNON (South Australia) . - I was under the impression that the debate which has taken place had forced honorable senators to the conclusion that it is absolutely futile to insert in a general measure a provision dealing with a particular case. Apparently, Senator Stewart has only one case in his mind, and he has endeavoured to enlist our sympathy in regard to it. I make a suggestion to him. Let him propose to insert in the Bill the name of the individual to whom he wishes to give relief. I know that sympathy without relief is like mustard without beef, but my suggestion would carry out what he desires.
