Senator DE LARGIE (Western Australia) . - I quite agree with what Senator W. Russell has said ; but, at the same time, he must realize that the rapid manner in which measures have been rushed through this afternoon has deprived the Vice-President of the Executive Council of the time to give as much attention to Bills as he would like. He has been kept very busy, and supporters of the Government cannot expect him to do impossibilities. It is true that he introduced the Bill very briefly ; but, no doubt, he thought it was not necessary to make a long explanation, inasmuch as he could explain any point upon which information was desired in Committee.
