Mr McCOLL (Echuca) .- I trust that this Bill will be discussed to-day in a) business-like way.. I do not know whether the Minister of Trade and Customs is thoroughly seized of all the circumstances connected with the discussion of the measure on Friday last. Honorable members will recollect that an amendment was suggested' by the honorable member for North Sydney - an. amendment which provided that the total expenditure upon bounties in any one year should not exceed .£75,000. The suggestion was accepted by the Minister, who was in charge of the Bill at the time, and I should like to' know whether the Minister of Trade and Customs is prepared to indorse the attitude adopted by his colleague upon that occasion.
