Senator ANDERSON (New South Wales) (Minister for Supply) - in reply - I thank Senator Poyser and Senator McManus for the speedy passage of this legislation and for what they have said in relation to the work of the Decimal Currency Board in the switch over to decimal currency. Their remarks were well merited and are readily acknowledged. I have taken on board their references to the metric system and the report of the Senate Select Committee on Metric Weights and Measures. Although that subject is not directly related to this Bill I acknowledge the points they have made and I will see that their comments are referred to the Government in its consideration of the Select Committee's report.

Question resolved in the affirmative.

Bill read a second time, and passed through its remaining stages without amendment or debate.
