Senator MURPHY(New South Wales-

Leader of the Opposition) - by leave - Earlier in the day I asked that the matter raised by Senator Cavanagh in effect be held over for a little while so that I might be able to put some proposal to the Senate to have the matters sent in a slightly different form to the committee or to the 2 committees concerned. It has not been possible to reach agreement on this in the time available to us. Therefore I suggest that the course which Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson originally suggested be proceeded with. I reserve my right to come forward in the next day or so with the proposal which might involve some rechannelling and changing of the proposals on this important matter of the effect on the general community of Post Office changes and what otherwise ought to be done. This was the purpose for which I sought the postponement. Not having been able to achieve this, we on this side accede to what Senator Sir Kenneth Anderson proposed, that is, that the motion be put as a formal motion without debate.
