Senator DALY (South AustraliaVicePresident of the Executive Council) .- I move-

That the committee does not insist on the amendments of the Senate disagreed to by the House of Representatives.

The subject-matter of the various amendments has already been fully discussed in this chamber, and I can add nothing useful, except to say that the amendments have gone to another place, have been considered there, and have been returned to the Senate for reconsideration. The Senate having attained its object by making its protest, I submit that it should not further insist upon the amendments.

Senator Sir GEORGEPEARCE (Western Australia) [5.45]. - I ask the committee to vote against the motion submitted by the Leader of the Government in the Senate, so that the whole of these amendments may be referred back to another place for further consideration. I shall follow the example of Senator Daly and not debate them further, except to intimate that not only has another place rejected the amendments made by the Opposition, but that it has treated both sides alike, and also rejected those inserted by the representatives of the Government.

Suggest corrections
