Senator DALY (South Australia) (Vice-President of the Executive Council) . - I do not propose to reply at length to the arguments advanced by those honorable senators who have spoken against the bill. The right honorable the Leader of the Opposition (Senator Pearce) effectively answered all objections to the measure. I should not have spoken but for the- suggestion made by Senator Plain that this proposal should be referred to mining experts. I take it that those honorable senators who intend to vote against the bill will do so, not because in their opinion sufficient information has not. been supplied, but for the reason advanced by them that the bill is wrong in principle. That being so, no good purpose would be served by postponing it and, therefore, I cannot accede to Senator Plain's request.
