Book caption reads - Very much at the last minute, the New Zealand government asked for three amendments to the [Australian] Commonwealth Bill - involving legal and defence matters and seeking the right [for New Zealand] to join the Commonwealth for another seven years on the same terms as the original states. William Pember Reeves, New Zealand's Agent-General in London, annoyed Australian colonies with his reported remarks that a further referendum might be needed. The Australians had held nine referenda in the previous two years and there was no intention of holding any more, particularly as the decision had been a close run thing in New South Wales.
