Senator KEATING (Tasmania) . - -I have given notice of my intention to move two amendments which I think should commend themselves to the Minister and the Committee. They are really intended to strengthen the clause which, as the marginal note says, provides that a trustee shall not accept an extra beneiit. I move -

That after the word " solicitor," line 7, the word " creditor " be inserted.

I have also given notice of my intention to move the omission of the words "employed about the brankruptcy," so that the prohibition will apply not alone to the manager, trustee to the bankrupt, or solicitor, but also to a creditor or other person.

Senator Gardiner - I am prepared to accept the amendment, because I think it is a reasonable one.

Amendment agreed to.

Amendment (by Senator Keating) proposed -

That the words " employed about the bankruptcy," lines 7 and 8, be left out.
