Senator GEORGES (Queensland) - I cannot allow the remarks of Senator Hall to go unchallenged. He may have a case in regard to his amendment but he should not have made the statement, which I think was initiated by interjection by Senator Missen, that this was a sort of blackmail. That remark ought not be accepted. Senator Hall also made the statement that the House of Representatives is now on holiday. That is a reflection on every member of that place, who like ourselves in this place, have a considerable backlog of work to do in their electorates which will keep them going well into the Christmas period. I do not think it serves us well to reflect in this way on members of the other House.
