Senator CHATAWAY (Queensland) . -I think it will suit the Committee best that clause 2, which increases the appropriation, should be postponed until after the consideration of the clauses which alter the amounts in the schedules. It will be found, on reference to the Journals for 1907, that clause 2 of the Bounties Bill, which was the same as clause 2 of this Bill, was postponed until after the schedules had been dealt with. It will, no doubt, be remembered by some honorable senators, that the amounts in those schedules were altered, and that the appropriation in clause 2 had then to be altered to agree with the totals in the schedules. I ask you, sir, to look into this matter during the dinnerhour, and to consider whether it is not advisable to follow the precedent which was established in1907.
