Mr KELLY (Wentworth) - I should like to know the meaning of the words in paragraph a -

The Registrar shall collect for each State the fees which become payable.

I understand that this will become a transferred Department, and must be administered on the bookkeeping system; but the existing rights referred to in the clause may continue for a number of years after the bookkeeping system has ceased. Why is it that provision is not made for debiting the expense of collection to the States, since the fees are to be credited to them?

Suggest corrections
