Mr SPEAKER - The original question was that the Bill be now read a second time, to which the Leader of the Opposition moved an amendment that all words after 'that' be omitted with a view to substituting other words. The immediate question is that the words proposed to be omitted stand part of the question. Those of that opinion say 'aye', to the contrary 'no'. I think the ayes have it.

Opposition members- The noes have it. Mr SPEAKER-Is a division required? Opposition members- A division is required. Mr SPEAKER-The House will divide. The bells having been rungMr SPEAKER- While the tellers are taking up their positions, I point out that the Prime Minister is in the chamber but I do not see the Leader of the Opposition. If the Prime Minister wishes to retire I would be pleased to give him leave.
