Senator McCOLL (Victoria) (Vice- President of the Executive Council) . - I think that as the two Bills are intimately related to each other, it would be an advantage if they could both be discussed at the same time. I suggest that before moving the second reading "of this Bill the other measure should be presented and read a first time, so that the two measures could be discussed together on the second reading of this one

The PRESIDENT - It is entirely for the Senate to say whether it will consider the two Bills together or not.

Senator Barker - We have not got the other Bill yet.

The PRESIDENT - It is proposed that the other Bill shall be read a first time presently. It is not for the President or Minister to coerce honorable senators. What is suggested can only be done by their unanimous consent.
