The CHAIRMAN - I have no objection to business being interrupted for a moment to two, in order that a question of that character may be put to the Minister, but I would point out that the question before the Chair is the consideration of clause 28.

Mr McCAY - I wish to ask whether the Attorney-General is prepared to report progress ?

Mr Isaacs -No. I think we ought to reach clause 46 to-night.

Mr McCAY - I point out to the AttorneyGeneral that clause 34, to which attention has previously been directed, is bound to create some discussion. The Attorney-General must admit that the remarks of honorable members have been commendably brief.

Mr HUME COOK (BOURKE, VICTORIA) - And very frequent.

Clause agreed to.

Clause 29 -

(1)   If the proprietor of a trade mark claims to be entitled to the exclusive use of any part of it separately he may, if the part satisfies all the conditions of a trade mark, register it as a separate trade mark.

(2)   When a part of a registered trade mark is registered separately, it and the trade mark of which it forms a part shall be deemed to be associated trade marks, but the user of the whole trade mark shall for the purposes of this Act be deemed to be also a user of the part separately registered as a trade mark.

Amendment (by Mr. Isaacs) agreed to -

That after the word " marks," line 9, tie words " and shall be entered on the register as such, and shall each have all the incidents of an independent trade mark" be inserted.

Mr. JOSEPHCOOK (Parramatta).Does this clause mean that if an individual has secured the registration of any part of a trade mark, he has obtained registration in respect of the whole of it? I think it assumes that.

Mr Isaacs - I do not understand the honorable member's difficulty.
