Mr LIONEL BOWEN (Attorney-General)(4.52) —I move:

(1) Clause 6, page 8, line 17, insert ``, under a corresponding provision of a law of a State or under this section and under such a provision'' after ``section''.

As I understand it, sub-clause 6 of this clause permits the Attorney-General to authorise the payment of costs arising out of an adjournment of a proceeding under clause 6. Because it is possible that an adjournment will be made under a State cross-vesting law or partly under such law and partly under a Commonwealth cross-vesting law, it is desirable to amend sub-clause (6) to cover that possibility. That is the reason for the amendment.
