Mr McCAY (Corinella) - Under the amendment which has just been made, if the Registrar believes a person to be living, when, as a matter of fact, he is dead, he will be required to obtain a consent which cannot be furnished without some difficulty. Should we not provide that the Registrar shall require the applicant to furnish the proof ?

Mr Isaacs - When a person is shown to be dead, the Registrar will not believe that he is living.

Clause, as amended, agreed to.

Clause, 2 7 agreed to.

Clause 28 (Concurrent user).

Mr. McCAY(Corinella). - I suggest that the Attorney- General should report progress. Upon Tuesday night it is usual for the House to rise much earlier than 11 o'clock.

Mr Isaacs - Some of these clauses are of purely a formal character.

Mr McCAY - We have heard that statement before. I suggest that after clause 31 has been disposed of, the Attorney - General should report progress.

Mr JOSEPH COOK (PARRAMATTA, NEW SOUTH WALES) - I am afraid that the Attorney-General regards this Bill as one which should not be discussed at all.

Mr McCAY - There are one or two very debatable clauses in Division 2.
