Senator KEATING (Tasmania) .- Inasmuch as the usual parliamentary practice has been to postpone the definition clauses of Bills until the substantive clauses have been dealt with, I venture to suggest to the Vice-President of the Executive Council that he should adopt a similar course upon the present occasion. The Bill contains a full page and a half of definitions in addition to seventy-one clauses. Quite a number of amendments have been foreshadowed, and it may be that after we have enacted the substantive clauses we shall take an entirely different view of the terms set out in the definition clause from that which we now entertain. In these circumstances I suggest that the consideration of this clause should be postponed.
